The Centre for Anglo-German Cultural Relations welcomes Judith Kuckart as Writer in Residence
16 November 2018

Judith Kuckart is a German dancer, choreographer, director and author. Her works range from plays to radio plays and from novels to stories. In the past the author cooperated with other colleagues like fine artists, so that another layer was added to her keenly observant and precise formulated narrations.

In her latest novel, Dass man durch Belgien muss auf dem Weg zum Glück, Judith Kuckart describes eleven episodes of persons in everyday situations. Their stories are somehow linked by cunning intersections, but above all, they share a melancholic, yet not desperate mood in their lives. Every figure lacks something: offsprings, autonomy, the courage to say goodbye… though not everyone is aware of it. The engaging language in the novel creates pictures of a near inevitable loss of lightness like the first autumn days replacing warm summer evenings every year.

She will be Writer in Residence at the Centre until 28th November.

Third seminar: ‘Red Books and Russian Agents: Behind the Scenes at Penguin's Russian Classics’ (Dr Cathy McAteer)
9 November 2018

This paper examines Penguin’s twentieth-century re-launch of the nineteenth-century Russian literary canon. Drawing on previously untapped archival material (letters, memos, readers’ reports, reviews, adverts), this paper reveals a previously undisclosed ‘behind-the-scenes’ look at Russian-English literary translation in the mid-twentieth century. It offers new insight into Penguin Classics luminaries: Penguin founder Allen Lane, the editors EV Rieu and ASB Glover, and the early translators Elisaveta Fen, David Magarshack and Rosemary Edmonds, whose work also enjoyed frequent airings on national stage and in BBC Third Programme broadcasts. I will examine how these agents pooled their expertise and abilities to bring an accessible form of Russian literature to the mass lay reader. I will be drawing on archive- and text-based materials – a micro-historical approach, as advocated by Jeremy Munday – to explain how translators’ personal/professional backgrounds shaped their translation practice and, in doing so, determined the Anglophone reception of classic Russian literature for almost half a century.

Second seminar: 'Unfriendly Comparison: Antagonism in China-India Literary Relations' (Dr Adhira Mangalagiri)
22 October 2018

Comparative Literature excels at studying connection, dialogue, exchange, translation, and other positively-valued modes of relation. In contrast, this paper questions whether the method of comparison can be harnessed to study “unfriendly” relations such as hostility, tensions, anxieties, and the absence of dialogue and exchange. I explore this question through the case of twentieth-century China-India literary relations. Reading Chinese and Hindi texts, I consider how comparative methods can sustain and apprehend antagonism on its own terms instead of aiming to resolve or erase conflict.
