Open Access Digital Tools of Translation and their Ethical Reverberations in the Age of Post-Truth

Open Access Digital Tools of Translation & their Ethical Reverberations in the Age of Post-Truth
[New]

This group invites its participants to think about the relationship between digital technology and translation from a socio-politically informed perspective.Besides their immediate practical value, all these digital advancements carry the potential of promoting “ideals of transparency” that have already been impinged on translation in the digital age. What is disorienting about this alleged transparency is that it invests translation with a political significance, a democratic promise, as disclosing the opacity that veils the truth. The group will consider a shared list of readings and plans to invite four guests in the course of the year — translators, scholars, or editors — to think about digital translation tools and how people use them.
