Arabic, World Literature, Season of Migration to the North, Tayeb Salih, translation
In this episode, Harper speaks with Binghamton University graduate student Arianna Mueller about translation studies, Arabic, world literature, and post colonialism by considering Tayeb Salih's Season of Migration to the North. We hear an excerpt from the text and discuss how translation impacts readability and the legibility of Arabic texts beyond the Arab world. We also think about intertextual relationships between Salih's novel and other (post)colonial texts, including Conrad's Heart of Darkness and EM Forster's A Passage to India.
