As part of the School of Arts and Humanities English Research Seminar Series, Dr Serena Bassi, University of Cardiff presents: ‘Subjectivity, language and the neoliberal regimes of translation’.

In this talk, Dr Serena Bassi, University of Cardiff will look at national varieties of ‘gay slang’ and their embedded multilingualism as a privileged site for the study of processes of linguistic reorganisation. Dr Bassi will offer a reading of the 1970s Euro-American Gay Liberation movement as a linguistic laboratory in which a set of translational and translingual practices enabled activists to dis-identify with the ‘mother tongue’ as a ‘heteronationalist’ invention.
