The Latin American Colonial Forum invites proposals for a panel on colonial translation for the 2020 MLA convention. This panel seeks to explore the effects of translation in the relationship between Europeans and indigenous Americans. Beyond the issue of mere accuracy in translation, what kind of effects does translation produce? For example, to what extent does translation merely misrepresent indigenous culture or transform it? What effects does translation have beyond the text? To what extent do native translators and indigenous communities themselves contribute to this transformation?
