The footnote reading from Donna Haraway's book "Staying with the Trouble. Making Kin in the Chthulucene", translated into German by Karin Harrasser, will be embedded in a report on translation problems, pleasures, and strategies with a book that makes the gesture of transmission a method.
It doesn’t only switch between different fields of knowledge and genres, but also puts focus on the question of the reality content of metaphors. Translating thus becomes something true to its Latin source, translatio—carrying across or crossing over—including the risk of shipwrecking.

The lecture will be held in German.
