Global Publishing: Translation, Media, Migration

Sandra Lekas Bermann

Back to "Spring 2021" courses

Global publishing today – both book and digital – is one of the major ways that ideas and culture, hegemony and resistance, all cross borders. Essential to its effects are research, translation, media, and migration. How has the publishing industry contributed to “thinking globally” and led to widespread cultural transformations? In what ways and to what extent has it remained national or regional, focusing largely on the US and Europe? How are current crises around race, economics, and global health affecting the industry today? This course takes both a theoretical and also a more practical look at these and related questions.
