Vortrag von
Meena Kandasamy    

Dienstag, 10. Mai 2016, 14-16 Uhr
SAI, Raum E11  

moderiert von Hans Harder    


The relationship between English and Tamil (just as much as with other regional languages of South Asia) is a complex and sometimes problematic one. Drawing on examples of her own practice of translating from Tamil to English, the writer and socio-linguist Meena Kandasamy (Chennai) will discuss this uneasy coexistence of discrete but overlapping literary spheres in present-day India. She will present instances of how translation may succeed to bridge cultural gaps and also how it sometime miserably fails to do so.    

About Meena Kandasamy
Meena Kandasamy is a poet, novelist and political activist. She lives in Chennai. So far she has published two volumes of poetry in English, Touch (2006) and Ms. Militancy (2010), as well as one novel called Gypsy Goddess (2014). Meena Kandasamy holds a PhD in Sociolinguistics and is an experienced translator from Tamil into English.

As the war crime tribunals are still going on, recent developments have again triggered controversy and friction among political and social actors in Bangladesh. These have deepened the impression generated in the aftermath of the Shahbagh movement, namely that Bangladeshi society is being polarized as seldom before, with proponents of secularism on one side and those opting for Islam as guiding principle of state and society on the other. The killings of bloggers propagating secular orientations since February 2015, attacks against religious leaders of minority communities, and the failed petition to remove the declaration of Bangladesh as an Islamic State from the Constitution, are the most prominent recent issues in this regard. How is Bangladesh’s government, with its increasingly authoritarian practice in matters of press freedom etc., going to tackle these developments?


In this panel discussion, prominent lawyer SARA HOSSAIN and human rights activist NABA KUMAR RAHA will give introductions to their take on the current state of affairs. This will be followed by an open discussion.


The Guest Speakers:

SARA HOSSAIN is lawyer at the Supreme Court, Dhaka, and a prominent human rights activist. After studies in Oxford and Middle Temple, she joined the chambers of her father, the former Minister of External Affairs of Bangladesh, Dr. Kamal Hossain. Much of her work is of a voluntary nature, e.g. directing the Bangladesh Legal Aid and Services Trust (Blast). A few days ago she received the International Women of Courage Award of the US State Department.


NABA KUMAR RAHA is director of the Gandhi-Ashram in Noakhali (Bangladesh). The founding stone for the trust was laid by M. K. 

Gandhi during the Noakhali riots after Independence. Communal harmony and Khadi work continue to be priorities of the Ashram. In 2014, Naba Kumar Raha received the "G. Ramachandran-Ikeda Award" from Delhi for his merits.
