Ahmed de Bourgogne: Between Migration and Translation
Description or Abstract
The Center for Translation Studies presents an interdisciplinary lecture by Margaret Clare Gilligan, a graduate student at AUC’s Department of Arab and Islamic Civilizations. Gilligan addresses issues of representation in translation in the book Ahmed de Bourgogne, an autobiography born out of a collaboration between clandestine Ahmed Beneddif and renowned French writer and social scientist Azouz Begag, both French residents of Algerian origin. Relating the novel with the present-day migrant crisis, Gilligan raises important questions on the voice of the marginalized and the means in which it is heard.
