Session Description:

This roundtable uses translation across languages, genres, media as a point of entry into “language/nation” questions identified by Brent Edwards in “The Twenty-First-Century MLA” (2013). While various transnational Americas concepts suggest a move away from the one-language/one-nation model, they question how linguistic and cultural translation produces the nation across space and time.
