Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article examines the translation process from Japan to Chile by two members (and two generations) of the Barry family in Santiago. In the first place, the image of Japan is analyzed in the literary work of Carlos Barry, a sports journalist for the newspaper El Chileno, who visited Imperial Japan in 1941; then the article delves into the intimate process of encountering and uprooting of his daughter Vivienne Barry, author of the film Atrapados en Japón (2015). The text concludes that a popular orientalist discourse can be found in both authors, which reinforces the binary construction between East and West.
