  • Brazil – History of Translation/Brasil – História da Tradução

    Publicado em 07/06/2022 às 11:38 AM

    PGET publishes an entry in the Encyclopedia of Translation and Interpreting (ENTI), entitled “Brazil – History of Translation/Brasil – História da Tradução,” by Andréia Guerini and Walter Carlos Costa, which can be accessed here.

    Abstrat: The history of translation and interpretation in Brazil is old, poorly documented and insufficiently known. However, Brazil is one of the countries where Translation Studies occupy a prominent position in graduate studies, and this has contributed to the multiplication of research on the history of translation in different institutions. What follows is a brief overview of a complex history spanning several centuries and involving a wide variety of actors in a huge area. Centuries before the arrival of the Portuguese, there were, to varying degrees, interpretation among the indigenous peoples, especially among the Tupis who occupied much of the Brazilian coast and other peoples who inhabited the region. Since the official “discovery” of Brazil in 1500, the Portuguese colonizers have regularly practised interpretation with the different indigenous peoples as they occupied the territory, often using Tupi as an intermediate language. Then, with the arrival of the Jesuits, and with the efforts to catechize part of the indigenous population, relations began to change and from oral tradition, we moved on to written tradition. The written tradition takes shape after the arrival of the Portuguese royal family in Brazil in 1808, as the books that were previously printed in Portugal are now produced in Brazil, under the control of the Royal Press. In the 19th century, the country began to publish newspapers, magazines and books on a regular basis, and translation became an important presence, although not always explicit. In the 20th century, we witnessed the development of the national publishing industry and translation will play an important role in it at different times. The translation will be done mainly from French and English, from which indirect translations will be done, which will be frequent until the middle of the century. At the end of the 20th century and in the 21st century, we will see a real revolution in terms of translation in the country, which coincides with the digital revolution and the development of universities. Translation, which is increasingly done directly from a wide range of languages, not only occupies an important place in national production, but is also studied systematically in universities. Specific master’s and doctorate programs in Translation Studies were created, and there is a growing bibliography on the area, including several specialized journals.

  • Raízes Feministas em Tradução: Italiano

    Publicado em 07/06/2022 às 10:48 AM

    The edition is organized by professors Ana Maria Chiarini (UFMG), Andreia Guerini (UFSC) and Karine Simoni (UFSC).

    The bilingual edition of Raízes Feministas em Tradução: Italiano is the first of a collection produced by Edições Câmara, which aims to bring period texts written by women to the public’s attention. The documents in this volume date from the 13th to 19th centuries, a period in which women found themselves out of the world of arts and writing. They were tied to household chores or were confined, and many of them did not even have access to literacy, which was reserved for only high-class men. In this context, the organizers prepared a meticulous selection of authors who can be considered proto-feminists, as they already exposed, in their writings, their nonconformity with the patriarchal system of the time. We are facing an intense and meticulous work in the choice of texts, which demand a more active role of women in society and deal with cases that already involve gender equality and women’s emancipation.

  • James Joyce: Finnegans Rivolta

    Publicado em 07/06/2022 às 10:04 AM

    Book organized by Professor Dirce Waltrick do Amarante

    The opinion is unanimous that James Joyce’s novel Finnegans Wake (1939) is in principle completely untranslatable. Joyce himself, however, was the first to decide that this was no reason why he should not be transposed, transcreated, or translated, in some sense of this flexible term. After the appearance in 1928 of Anna Livia Plurabelle, a text that later became the eighth chapter of the novel, he soon organized an experimental translation group (to continue using the term translation) to translate several pages of this chapter into French, with the your own help; then he collaborated in translating smaller excerpts into basic English; and, finally, he took charge of an exuberant translation into Italian of some pages previously translated into French. In spite of its obvious untranslatability, there are currently, and in Joyce’s footsteps, various versions, translations, transpositions or complete transcreations of Finnegans Wake, in more than a dozen different languages. The first Portuguese translation of excerpts, by Augusto and Haroldo de Campos, appeared in 1957; expanded, gave rise to a small volume in 1962 under the title Panaroma of Finnegans Wake. The first complete translation of the novel was by Donaldo Schüler and appeared in 2003 under the title Finnicius revém. Individual chapters were translated by other hands, including Dirce Waltrick do Amarante, the bold and tireless coordinator of Finnegans Rivolta, the second complete version in Brazilian Portuguese. Following the example of Joyce, who assembled a group of translators, Finnegans Rivolta is the fascinating product of eleven translators.

  • Centennial of Lima Barreto – Anthology of Brazilian short stories

    Publicado em 23/05/2022 às 09:24 AM

    Egress from PGET and currently professor of Translation Studies at the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile launches a book on Lima Barreto in Spanish.

    To commemorate the centenary of Lima Barreto we have prepared an edition with new translations of seven of his stories and one of his chronicles. These will take Spanish-speaking readers to walk the streets of Rio de Janeiro at the beginning of the 20th century and discover its joys, contradictions and miseries. The work, which will be published in June 2022 by Mago Editores, was sponsored by the Department of Arts and Culture (DAC) of the Research Vice-Rectory of the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, through the Artistic Creation Contest / line of research. The translation project led by Leticia Goellner, a Brazilian translator and academic at the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, has a team from the same university, made up of Vicente Menares, Ignacia Montero and Pablo Saavedra. In addition, it includes essays by two Brazilian researchers in the area of ​​translation, Dr. Dirce Waltrick from UFSC and Dr. Alessandra Harden from UnB/Brazil. The Moreira Salles Institute generously allowed us to use the cover image, a photograph from 1890 (Marc Ferrez/Gilberto Ferrez Collection/ Moreira Salles Institute). With this visual paratext, the “Rua do Ouvidor” is introduced to the Spanish-speaking public, one of the fundamental settings in which Lima Barreto portrays the reality of his time.

    We thank the following institutions for contributing to the dissemination of this anthology: Embassy of Brazil in Santiago; Brazil-Chile Cultural Center (CCBRACH); La Moneda Cultural Center (CCLM); Faculty of Letters of the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile. Master in Translation UC.

  • A Língua Mundial – tradução e dominação de Pascale Casanova

    Publicado em 17/05/2022 às 03:23 PM

    Book translated by Professor Marie Hélène Catherine Torres and published by the UFSC publisher in partnership with the UnB publisher.

    In A Língua Mundial – tradução e dominação, the author Pascale Casanova proposes an innovative framework to analyze the mechanisms of linguistic domination, by analyzing the role of translation as a means, as an instrument against linguistic domination and also as a way of accumulating symbolic capital. . The work begins with the example of translations from Latin into French in the 16th and 17th centuries and ends with a discussion of the implications of the growing domination of what Casanova calls the World Language, that is, English. Against collective bilingualism that leads to linguistic and cultural domination, Casanova proposes resistance to dependence from the atheist position, that is, the position of no longer believing in the prestige of the world language (English). The role of translation would be to fight and then measure the degree of domination, since the presence of translation reduces domination. It is an unpublished edition in Portuguese of the last book published by Casanova in life.
