14 Feb Translation Studies Symposium II: The Translational Paradigm
Monday, February 14 / 1:00 PM
McCune Conference Room, 6020 HSSB
This symposium marks the first anniversary of the Translation Studies Doctoral Emphasis at UCSB. As Emily Apter observed in the recent MLA Profession 2010, “In this time of economic downturn and the humanities’ consequent vulnerability, translation studies (and the translational paradigm) emerge as a workable rallying point.” In our second symposium we continue to explore the ways in which translation studies opens up new avenues of research and pedagogy. Speakers include David Bellos (Princeton University), Michael Heim, Efraín Kristal, Romy Sutherland, Jordan Yamaji Smith (UCLA), and UCSB faculty and students working in translation studies.
Sponsored by the Series in Contemporary Literature, the IHC, the CLTC, the departments of East Asian Studies and Spanish and Portuguese, and the program in Comparative Literature.
