Abstract: The study of memory, individual or collective, draws on a variety of disciplines, but it was not until this century that contributions such as those collected in the 2014 special issue of Translation and Literature titled Holocaust Testimony and Translation started to address the significant role translation plays in the expression, preservation, and transmission of memory, particularly in relation to Holocaust Studies. 1 As a result of global migration, intricate links between memory and translation are also found in present-day urban environments, as well as historically, as Sherry Simon’s work has examined. 2 Siobhan Brownlie broadens the intersection between Memory Studies and Translation Studies by mapping different types of memory conceptualized in Memory Studies onto the study of translation.3 To add to this developing intersectional field of memory and translation, this article proposes an approach to understanding the translation of psychological space in autobiographical writing. ‘Psychological space’ is used here as a working term to define the space inhabited by the autobiographical ‘I’ as manifested in narrative.
