Associated scholarship(s):22/08062-4 - In search of zones of proximity: the immersive research of genetic criticism and contextualization as support tools for the translation of George Orwell's 1941 Political Diary, BE.EP.IC


This research project proposes an annotated and contextualized translation of George Orwell's political diary, written between 1940 and 1941, aiming to produce a rewriting of this text in Brazilian Portuguese from an immersive point of view. The project is thus intended to bring to light a text that did not reach the Brazilian public, enabling the academic dissemination of this material. Following Gleiton Lentz's proposal for a translation method that emerges from the Bermanian analytical path, the intention is to perform the project in awareness of the horizon and perspective, keeping a translation journal capable of covering development issues that may arise along this research. Based on the Foucaultian notion of the author function, this project targets the debate about the position from which George Orwell writes as a starting point to think about aspects which André Lefevere describes as manipulation and rewriting in translation. Finally, this work also encompasses, through the scholarship Bolsa Estágio de Pesquisa no Exterior (BEPE), research in loco at The George Orwell Archive (University College London), in order to bring tools from genetic criticism to translation, as proposed by Marie-Hélène Paret Passos, as well as at the British Newspaper Archive (British Library), to answer contextual questions regarding the translation of the diary.(AU)
