Translating Eastern Europe
Friday, January 31, 2014
Marshall D. Shulman Seminar Room (1219 IAB)
Please join the East Central European Center and Harriman Institute for an afternoon of readings and discussion. The literature of East Europe, during the Communist era and no less after 1989, refers to realities unfamiliar to North American readers and does so with idiosyncratic language. Its milieu and language pose a challenge to translate and to publish.

THE INTERNAL OTHER IN EAST CENTRAL EUROPE In the forty years of Communism in East Central Europe, social cleavages were muted and disadvantaged groups were deprived of opportunities of advocating on their own behalf. Since the transformations of 1989-91, some social groups have been marginalized, while others have mobilized to demand recognition. The speakers will present case studies of various internal others in different geographical locations in East Central Europe.
