Pascale Casanova: Translation as a weapon: language, value and literary capital

This was my first attempt at using CoveritLive. This talk was so much fun to live-blog and link, not just because it was very smart and strangely engaging, but also because Fred Jameson translated quite a bit of the Q&A. The very point of the talk played itself out in practice. Except, oddly, enough the linguistic capital derived from a US context.
