New Translation Studies Program

The Translation Studies Working Group (TSWG) oversees the Graduate Specialization in Translation Studies, aiming to strengthen and enrich opportunities for our students by drawing from disciplines of Languages, Literatures, Anthropology, International Studies, and Folklore. This specialization seeks to strengthen graduate offerings in this vital and complex field.

TSWG is supported by the UO Global Studies Institute and is comprised of a diverse group of faculty, graduate students, emeriti, and active professional community members who work across a broad spectrum of languages and disciplines. This group explores the interdisciplinary aspects of multiple forms of translation through research, teaching, and practice.

New Book Published

Sonja Boos’s new book:

Speaking the Unspeakable in Postwar Germany: Toward a Public Discourse on the Holocaust

In this book, Professor Boos analyzes canonical speeches from the 1950s and 60s by Hannah Arendt, Theodor W. Adorno, Ingeborg Bachmann, Martin Buber, Paul Celan, Uwe Johnson, Peter Szondi, and Peter Weiss, to demonstrate how these speakers both facilitated and subverted the construction of a public discourse about the Holocaust in West Germany.

The book concludes with the outlines of a cultural historiography that would distance itself from the metaphysics of historicism, confronting instead its underlying anxieties.     More info
