No Friend But Mountains: Translation as Literary Experimentation and Shared Philosophical Activity
Description or Abstract
The Center for Translation Studies presents an interdisciplinary lecture by Omid Tofighian, Assistant Professor of Philosophy at AUC, in virtual conversation with Behrouz Boochani, a Kurdish-Iranian scholar, writer and filmmaker, who is currently a political prisoner incarcerated by the Australian government on Manus Island. In his collaborative talk, Tofighian not only discusses Boochani’s book - the main theme of which is the notion of systematic torture – but seeks to shed light on the understudied issue of migration and border politics in Australia more generally.
