Hiermit laden wir alle Interessierten zum oben genannten Gastvortrag im Rahmen des Seminars "Introdução à Literatura Angolana: Clássicos e Contemporâneos", das immer mittwochs von 11.15 - 12.45 Uhr im GWZ, Raum 2.316 stattfindet, ein.

Drawing from anthropology, history, translation studies, and philosophy, this presentation interrogates the relationship between translation and fetishism, fixation and instability. It argues that the history of the circulation of the concept of the 'fetish' must be understood in relation to its iterations in the Global South and examines how 'fetish', fetiche, feitiço, and other terms in European languages have been juxtaposed with Umbundu terms such as umbanda and owanga in colonial Central Angola.
