June 24 (3PM Italiane): “Translating Chinese science fiction into Italian”, reflections on translation, with Anna di Toro (University for Foreigners of Siena), Chiara Cigarini, Bella Han and Francesco Verso.
Through the choices made in the translation of a science fiction story by the author Bella Han (the result of the work of a group of students of the master’s course of the Univ. For Foreigners of Siena), and a short journey through other Chinese science fiction translations towards Italian, the different linguistic yields will be evaluated and two languages-cultures will be compared. The experience of translation therefore becomes a fundamental tool for reflecting on languages, but also for discovering peculiar cultural features of the tradition of science fiction fiction in the two countries.
