CIFAS Seminar - Sympathy for the Translator, Sympathy for the Devil, Presented by Associate Professor Stephen Epstein

CIFAS Seminar - Sympathy for the Translator, Sympathy for the Devil, Presented by Associate Professor Stephen Epstein


Add to calendar

Presenter:  Associate Professor Stephen Epstein, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand

Date: Jul 16, 2019

Time: 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Contact person:  Nathan Franklin
T: 08 8946 7171
E: nathan.franklin@cdu.edu.au

Location:  Blue 1.1.35, Casuarina Campus, Charles Darwin University

Mark Polizzotti's polemic 2018 essay collection Sympathy for the Translator, as its press blurb states, "invites us to sympathize with the translator not as a 'traitor' but as the author's creative partner."  Associate Professor Epstein will give an overview of his experience in translating Intan Paramaditha's Gentayangan: Pilih Sendiri Petualangan Sepatu Merahmu (The Wandering: Choose Your Own Red Shoes Adventure), the winner of Tempo Magazine's award for the best Indonesian prose fiction work of 2017, and his relationship of translation and creative collaboration with the author.

Other topics that Stephen will touch upon are comparative observations on translating two different Asian languages into English, the recent controversies that have emerged as Indonesia literature increasingly appears on the world's stage as the 2015 guest of honour at the Frankfurt Book Fair and market focus country at the London Book Fair earlier this year, and the extensive use of quotes from English-language song lyrics in his translation of Gentayangan. For an overview of this remarkable novel before the session, see Tiffany Tsao's review: https://www.thejakartapost.com/life/2017/11/13/intan-paramadithas-gentayangan-crosses-many-borders.html. The work is being supported by a PEN Translate grant and the PEN/Heim Translation Fund and will appear with Harvill Secker in the UK and Arcade Books in the US in 2020.

Profile
Over the course of his career, Stephen Epstein has had dual specializations in the ancient Mediterranean and in contemporary Korea. His primary intellectual activities, however, start from a fascination with language and a desire to explore the experience of daily life in other cultures. His research focuses on contemporary Korean society, and he is currently working on a variety of projects addressing popular culture and the media in South Korea. Stephen has also published several translations of Korean and Indonesian fiction and co-produced two documentaries on the Korean underground music scene. At VUW, he directs the Asian Languages and Cultures Programme and served as director of the Asian Studies Institute between 2003-2008. He also served as the 2013-14 president of the New Zealand Asian Studies Society. For further information see his profile: https://www.victoria.ac.nz/slc/about/staff/stephen-epstein
