Betty Bednarski, Autour de Ferron. Littérature, traduction, altérité
Laval : Presses de l'Université Laval
EAN 9782763799087
242p.
prix : 35$
Présentation de l'éditeur :
Cette suite de textes interdépendants, consacrés à l’acte de traduire et à l’oeuvre de Jacques Ferron, se situe quelque part entre la théorie et la création. Puisant dans son expérience de traductrice, de critique et d’enseignante, Betty Bednarski se livre ici à une exploration des points de rencontre entre la traduction et les autres formes de lecture qu’elle a pratiquées. Elle poursuit en même temps une réflexion en spirale, qui se veut à la fois rigoureuse et personnelle, partant d’un problème de traduction infiniment petit et redécouvrant, à la lumière de Bakhtine, la douloureuse problématique de l’altérité chez Ferron.
Publiée d’abord en 1989, aux Éditions du GREF (Toronto), la première édition a gagné le prix Gabrielle-Roy (1990), le Prix de l’Association des professeurs de français des universités et collèges canadiens (1991), et a été finaliste pour le Prix du Gouverneur général (1991). Cette nouvelle édition, entièrement revue et mise à jour, est augmentée de quatre essais publiés sous la rubrique Lecture inachevée : quatre fragments, qui en élargissent la portée et approfondissent la réflexion.
L'auteur
Betty Bednarski est professeure émérite à l’Université Dalhousie (Halifax, Nouvelle-Écosse), et lectrice assidue de la littérature québécoise. À la fois critique et traductrice, elle est connue surtout pour ses essais sur Ferron et pour ses traductions anglaises de textes de cet auteur : Tales from the Uncertain Country (1972), Wild Roses (1976), Selected Tales of Jacques Ferron (1984) et Tales from the Uncertain Country and Other Stories (2010). Elle a publié, avec Ray Ellenwood, Jacques Ferron hors Québec / Jacques Ferron Outside Quebec (Toronto : Éditions du GREF, 2010).

Study on language and translation in international law and EU law - Terminology and linguistics - EU Bookshop

Study on language and translation in international law and EU law
Final report
The study on Language and Translation in International law and EU law explores the role of language and translation in the global environment with special regard to legal instruments. Divided into four thematic chapters and supported by two case studies, the study gives an overview of the language regime applied in international fora, presents the language-related aspects of the treaty-making powers of the EU, including the specific translation methods of treaties concluded by the EU and the impact of the terminology of international law on EU legislation, highlights the main regulatory instruments of international law on language rights and identifies the role and nature of linguistic rights, investigates the relationship between linguistic diversity and economic efficiency in view of the smooth functioning of the internal market and in a broader context, based on two case studies (one on labelling and the other on patents). The research was based on a thorough analysis of the relevant literature and of other publicly available documents, on replies received to previously prepared questionnaires and on personal interviews

African Books Collective: Running with Mother

Running with Mother
Christopher Mlalazi
Unsentimental and unselfpitying, this short but powerful novel by Chris Mlalazi vivifies an account by Rudo, a fourteen-year-old school girl who observes the terrifying events that take place in her village. Running with Mother provides us with a gripping story of how Rudo, her mother, her aunt and her little cousin survive the onslaught. Shocking as the story that unfolds may be, it is balanced by the resilience, self-respect, unselfishness and stoicism of the protagonists. Mlalazi's novel is written with insight, humour and provides a salutory reminder that even in the worst of times, we can find humanity.

Iberian Studies on Translation and Interpreting

This volume gathers contributions representing the main trends in translation and interpreting studies by authors in the Iberian peninsula, with a focus on the Iberian languages (Basque, Catalan, Portuguese/Galician and Spanish). The essays cover different methodologies and objects of analysis, including traditional textual and historical approaches as well as contemporary methods, such as cultural, sociological, cognitive and gender-oriented perspectives. This seemingly eclectic approach pivots around seven focal points that aim to reflect the most frequent research topics in the Iberian peninsula: (i) theoretical and methodological approaches; (ii) translation and interpreting training; (iii) historical perspectives; (iv) terminology; (v) rapidly evolving fields in the translation and interpreting industry, such as localization and public service interpreting; (vi) translation of literature; and (vii) translation studies journals.

Learning Technologies: Translation, Technology and Autonomy in Language Teaching and Learning

Congratulations to our team member, Labhaoise Ní Dhonnchadha, and her collaborators Pilar, Laura and Dorothy, on the publication of this collection of contributions on Translation, Technology and Autonomy in Language Teaching and Learning.The collection is based on a very successful conference that took place at NUI Galway in December 2012.

From the book synopsis:

This volume brings together contributions from academics, language teachers and practitioners from across Europe and beyond to discuss questions of autonomy and technology in the area of language learning and translation. The book focuses on English, French, Italian, Irish and Spanish language acquisition, but many of the essays also develop an interlinguistic perspective from a plurilingual point of view.
The book opens with key contributions from a number of leading scholars: Dr Daniel Cassany on critical literacies, Professor Henrik Gottlieb on translation into 'minor' languages, and Professor David Little on autonomy in language learning. These are followed by explorations of translation, technology, intercultural issues, autonomous learning and the European Language Portfolio. The volume represents an important contribution to the development of new plurilingual approaches to language teaching and learning.

Delinquent dining

The Dinner. By Herman Koch. Translated by Sam Garrett. Atlantic; 311 pages; £12.99. To be published in America in February by Hogarth; $24. Buy from Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk

FINE dining, at least in the West, is a drama in five acts. The arc moves from aperitif to digestif, from first course to dessert, the curtain rising with each unveiled plate. The five-course dinner is such a perfect theatrical setting in which to spy on unhappy families that it is surprising meals are not used more often by fiction writers and playwrights.

In this section

Now Herman Koch, a 58-year-old Dutch actor and comedian, has filled the gap with a novel that became an immediate bestseller when it was first published in the Netherlands in 2009. “The Dinner” has since sold more than 1m copies in 24 countries, from Norway to South Korea. This month the book appears for the first time in English.

John Benjamins: Multilingual Corpora and Multilingual Corpus Analysis Edited by Thomas Schmidt and Kai Wörner

This volume deals with different aspects of the creation and use of multilingual corpora. The term 'multilingual corpus' is understood in a comprehensive sense, comprising any systematic collection of empirical language data enabling linguists to carry out analyses about multilingual individuals, multilingual societies or multilingual communication. The individual contributions are thus concerned with a variety of spoken and written corpora ranging from learner and attrition corpora, language contact corpora and interpreting corpora to comparable and parallel corpora. The overarching aim of the volume is, first: to take stock of the variety of existing multilingual corpora, documenting possible corpus designs and uses, second: to discuss methodological and technological challenges in the creation and analysis of multilingual corpora, and third: to provide examples of linguistic analyses that were carried out on the basis of multilingual corpora.

Languages and the Military : Palgrave Macmillan

For the first time, this book explores the role of foreign languages in military alliances, in occupation and in peace building, through detailed case studies from Ireland, Britain, France, Finland, Slovenia, Korea, Bosnia and Cyprus, ranging from the eighteenth century until today. It adopts a multidisciplinary perspective, bringing together academic researchers and practitioners – from the military, and from the museum and interpreting worlds. The book raises key issues about communication, identity and representation in war, and argues that the complex linguistic dimensions of conflict and peace operations are of major relevance to military planners, civilian agencies, museums and the media.

Pidgin Language Book Launched In Abuja | Leadership Newspapers

The need for the domestication of pidgin language as an official language of communication was again brought to the fore yesterday in Abuja.

The event was the presentation and launch of the book If U Hie Se A De Prizin, Antoloji of Puem-Dem For Naija Langwej, held at Reiz Continental Hotel, Abuja.

The book is a collection of poems, all written in Nigerian pidgin by 32 poets and edited by Nigerian pidgin language promoter, Edwin Oribhabor.

Speaking in an interview, Oribhabor noted that the essence of the work was to promote the writing and speaking of the language, and to bring it out in literary form.

“What we want to achieve by this is to bring literary attention to pidgin. Pidgin should be used as a form of communication in the literary sense, not just speaking and finally, to standardise its way of spelling,” he said.
