CMES Colloquium – 'Translation Infrastructures and the Politics of Publishing Western Theory in Iran'

When: October 01, 2021 3:00pm
Professor Hosna Sheikholeslami

Join the Center for Middle Eastern Studies for another talk in the fall 2021 colloquium series. Hosna Shiekholeslami, associate professor at Denison University, will be our speaker. 

Description: "To better understand how and why knowledge travels, I take the moment of transfer via translation and publication in Iran as the starting point for ethnographic inquiry. Based on fieldwork in Tehran from 2012-2014, I examine 'translation infrastructures' – those processes, institutions, and social networks through which translations are produced and disseminated as book-objects."
