Translating Digital Literature. The Example of “I’m simply saying”
Translation Studies have become one of the central disciplines of the "humanities”. Recently, in the MA in Literature progaram where I am the Academic Director, we were working on Digital Poetry and I proposed that students translate a digital poem. I figured this could be a way to penetrate deeply into the meaning of the text, but also in the case of Digital Literature, to understand the dual nature of a digital text, its virtual materiality. I would like to share here a small but significant part of the process.
