The Funambulist #53 Threads of Translation May-June 2024


This 53rd issue of The Funambulist is a special one! It mostly consists of translations into thirty “non-hegemonic” languages of a text Indigenous Mixe writer Yásnaya Elena Aguilar Gil wrote for us. Entitled “Languages and Nation-States” and originally written in Ayuujk, it was then translated into Spanish, English, and French to serve as vehicles towards these thirty translations into Albanian, Armenian, Bahasa Indonesia, Bambara, Basque, Bosnian, Guyanese Creole, Haitian Creole, Hausa, Hawaiian, Inuktitut, Irish, Kashmiri (Koshur), Kikongo, Kurdish, Lao, Mapuche, Mauritian Creole, Maya, Mongolian, Quechua, Rroma, Shona, Somali, Swahili, Tagalog, Tamazight, Tamil, and Uzbek.

The translations are accompanied by details of the weave Eclipse (also featured on the cover) by Bolivian artist Kenia Almaraz Murillo. This issue concludes with a beautiful text entitled “Black Plumes, White Ink” by Malagasy author Marie Ranjanoro.
