Faculty of Arts at Home 21 - Literature, Language and Translation: Caribbean Artivism: Exploring the connections between environmental and racial justice
Dr Fabienne Viala (Director of the Yesu Persaud Centre for Caribbean Studies) explains the concept of ‘artivism’ to us, in its Caribbean context, as a fusion of art forms and practices through which artists confront and engage with a range of publics. Fabienne argues that artivism activates the empathetic imagination, and looks at how environmental and racial justice are brought into dialogue through her work with Caribbean artivists.
Faculty of Arts at Home 20 - Literature, Language and Translation: Literary Translation: A Guide for the Perplexed, Curious and Uninitiated
Dr Chantal Wright (Warwick Writing Programme) delivers the first of our ‘Literature, Language and Translation’ Faculty of Arts at Home films: ‘The Literary Translation: A Guide for the Perplexed, Curious and Uninitiated’. Chantal is an important advocate for translation as a profession and a practice, and she draws our attention here to the creative processes of literary translation. She highlights, for example, the significance of the #namethetranslator hashtag, and the campaign to properly credit translators for their work. Her film urges us, more broadly, to appreciate the fact that translated works are the result of the creative endeavours of two people.
