Living in Hong Kong is to witness history as it unfolds. The city was handed over from the British Crown to the Chinese Communist Party in 1997, and is globally known as a skyscraper-lined economic powerhouse. It is also the site of intense political struggle. The talk brings together two Hong Kong activists who have shaped historical events and an historian who has studied them.

This workshop will explore the ways digital humanities and big translation history can contribute to challenge notions of centrality and peripherality in translation history by connecting and shedding light into uncharted translation zones. Within a global approach and a focus on Ibero-American literatures, the workshop will provide different examples (translation in literary magazines, translation in the institutional framework of the League of Nations) of contexts analysed through the prism of data mining and what we have called big translation history. The workshop has been organized in collaboration with the research group "Cultural and literary exchanges between Latin-America and the Nordic countries" at the University of Oslo
