Translating Theory

A developing project that links asks about the relationship between critical theory and its terms being developed in German, French, and English, and the process by which these are ‘translated’ (literally and figuratively) into Arabic.

The project begins by creating and compiling a dictionary of critical terms, envisioned as ‘crowd sourced’ with each definition less of a definitive answer and –by using a flexible and edit-able platform–more of a conversation about how each term has been rendered and used in different Arabic contexts.
