Discussion Group: Translation as a Political Gesture in Ukraine
The starting point of this Discussion Group session stems from the first Ukrainian publication of Roland Barthes’ Camera Lucida, translated by Olena Chervonik. Chervonik discusses her translating efforts as a gesture of resistance not only to the current Russian brutal invasion of Ukraine but more broadly to the centuries-long Russian consistent erasure of the Ukrainian history and culture.
