Cosima Bruno

In Between the Lines Cosima Bruno illustrates how the study of translation can enhance our experience of reading poetry.
By inquiring into the mutual dependence of the source text and its translation, the study offers both theoretical insights and methodological tools that bring in-depth stylistic analysis to bear on the translations as against the originals.
Through such a process of discovery, Cosima Bruno elaborates a textual exegesis of the work by Yang Lian, one of the most translated, and critically acclaimed contemporary Chinese poets.
This book thus reconciles the theory-practice divide in translation studies, as well as helps to dismantle the lingering Eurocentrism still present in the discipline.

The Dimensions of Hegemony

Language, Culture and Politics in Revolutionary Russia


Craig Brandist

Though generally associated with the Italian Marxist Antonio Gramsci, the idea of hegemony had a crucial history in revolutionary Russia where it was used to conceptualize the dynamics of political and cultural leadership. Drawing on extensive archival research, this study considers the cultural dimensions of hegemony, with particular focus on the role of language in political debates and in scholarship of the period. It is shown that considerations of the relations between the proletariat and peasantry, the cities to the countryside and the metropolitan centre to the colonies of the Russian Empire demanded an intense dialogue between practical politics and theoretical reflection, which led to critical perspectives now assumed to be the achievements of, for instance, sociolinguistics and post-colonial studies.

-political configuration. The eurocentrism, typologism, morphologism and functionalism of those debates leave aside the most crucial elements for this inquiry: the substantive relationship between people occupying segments and centers. Following Goldman ( 2001 ) and MacGaffey ( 2005 ), I understand segmentary opposition
