Serge Daney in 2009

Happy New Year everyone. A quick look back at Serge Daney in 2009.

Despite a bunch of new translations earlier in the year, it sort of dwindled down. And there's no sight of new attempt to translate Daney, if anything, I'm hearing less and less about book projects. There has been a much larger audience on this blog. Unfortunately, despite having a few translations on the way, I struggle to finish them, so the pace of publishing will get even slower. If anybody is keen to help, do shout.

There were 8 new translations online this year:
Somehow, around 1000 of you (from 80 countries) managed your way to this blog (and did so several times in the year and stayed more than a few seconds). I consider you my true audience. It's kind of a big number and is enough to convince me this blog is worth continuing. I actually feel chuffed. So thanks a lot and happy new year!

    Congratulations on your wide and growing audience. Your blog is indeed well worth maintaining and is a fabulous resource which I shall be exploring for long to come. Best wishes and thanks. Alan Stanley

  2. In a discussion between Iranian philosopher, Youssef Ishaghpour, and Jean-Luc Godard, Daney's name appears occasionally. The interview's focus is on Godards's "Histoire(s) du cinéma" for French Trafic magazine. The name is "Archeoloie du cinema et memoire dune siecle" (2005).
    Published in Farsi as a book (translated two times in a year!)
