Alenka Ambrož


Research activity

Alenka Ambrož’s research focuses on paradigms of intercultural translation from the point of view of postcolonial and decolonial philosophies. Her research work is particularly dedicated to the concept of relation (between cultures, languages and individuals) in theories of translation, and to a study of its epistemological, phenomenological, ethical and political dimensions. She is interested in bodily effects of translation, the relationship between translation and community buliding, the intrications of translation and gender, emancipatory stakes of translation practices and the role of language and translation in relation to epistemic justice.
