Abstract

Currently & Emotion presents a varied and carefully curated selection of works which foreground the translator, and, by showcasing a broad range of approaches, seek to challenge dominant perceptions of translation as an uncomplicated literary service that simply facilitates access to foreign and/or historical texts. Currently & Emotion is comprised of 29 extended excerpts from book- or pamphlet-length translation projects (rather than one-off translations of individual poems), either unpublished or published since 2010. The selection leans towards translations by and from female translators and authors, and towards work that shows awareness of, and that negotiates in interesting ways, the complex power dynamics inherent to every act of translation. Currently & Emotion is both a collection of striking original work and an insightful and provocative reflection on contemporary practices of translation. The anthology aims not to provide a definitive thesis on what the process and function of translation should be, but to encourage discussion about its challenges and possibilities, and the complex political and emotional issues with which it unavoidably engages. In addition to the poems, the anthology includes extended introductory material by Sophie Collins, a preface by Erín Moure and an afterword by Zoë Skoulding. The excerpts are accompanied by short contextualising notes based on discussions with the translators and – where possible – the authors of the source texts.
