An event organised by the Women in the Field in South Asia research network.
How can we maintain meaning in local language, despite the necessity for English translation for PhD writing and publishing? When we need to work with a translator, what should we look for in accurate translation? Does your relationship with your translator matter? How this can affect fieldwork interviews? We will explore language and ‘ownership’ – how do we navigate the notion of ‘mother tongue’ vs ‘the other’ language, either in our academic writing or our fieldwork interactions.
- Language in fieldwork: Making visible the ethnographic impact of the researcher’s linguistic fluency
- ‘What a dolt one is’: language learning and fieldwork in geography
