Dear all,

I'm very sorry not to be able to attend these lectures
Hofstadter is as the author of the following

Hofstadter, Douglas. 2009. Translator, Trader: An Essay on the 
Pleasantly Pervasive Paradoxes of Translation. New York: Basic Books.

This presents an alternative to the overwork trope of Translator, traitor
if every translation is a trade-off then we have to think about the 
gains and losses of a particular translation strategy …

best wishes
