Translation is prismatic when it produces multiple variants. This can happen in the process of a single translational act, or when a text is translated into different languages, or when it is translated into the same language several times. Our conference explored all these aspects of the prism of translation in order to assess their origins, their effects and their potential. Our conference brought together scholars, theorists, translators, writers and artists to explore these questions. The aim was to generate productive – indeed, prismatic – discussion.
