Politics, Poetics and Pedagogy of Hope

Translation, Learning and Refusal

Hungry Translations: Relearning the World through Radical Vulnerability by Richa Nagar, Urbana, Chicago, Springfield: University of Illinois Press, 2019; pp 299, $28.

Hungry Translations: Relearning the World through Radical Vulnerability is written by Richa Nagar, who has been writing and researching on issues of power, positionality, know­ledge production and pedagogy for a long time. It can be a daunting book to take on, especially for a reader who has been coached in the certainties of academic reading, which are geared towards “making sense” of a book and contextualising it. But this is a book that confounds all protocols, all conventions, and still makes a compelling case for what feminist theorisation can or should look like. It is a difficult book to read and imbibe, precisely because it is written so simply, ­almost in the forms of vignettes, of ­moments captured while doing politics and theatre, movement and writing. This is the great strength, and also an important methodological intervention of this work.
