Beyond the Books - Series 2: Episode 6 - Charlotte Bosseaux
From Maire Cox
In the episode, Charlotte talks about her journey to Edinburgh, as well as her current research on the ethical demands of translating accounts of trauma, such as gender-based violence. This project, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), focuses on the testimonies of non-English speaking women and explores the ethical role translation plays in transmitting their experiences of trauma.
We get to hear about the dynamic and collaborative demands of Charlotte's project, which will result in the creation of a multilingual documentary and provide good practice guidelines for translators, translation companies, filmmakers and charities. We also learn about Charlotte’s past research on the uncanny nature of dubbing, and the many actors who have lent their voices to stars like Julianne Moore and Sean Connery.
