Translation in Transition
Barnard College, New York City, May 1-2, 2015
Themes: How can we consolidate the gains made by Translation Studies over the last quarter century? What are the future coordinates of a field that is always – and perhaps should remain – in transition?
Translation Studies emerged as an academic discipline within the last thirty years, and the word ‘translation’ itself is often invoked when we celebrate the productivity of intellectual exchange. Yet despite translation’s growing visibility as a metaphor for such exchange, and indeed as a vehicle for it, translation’s place in the university remains in flux. This conference seeks to take the pulse of current research in Translation Studies and to map emerging and innovative approaches in the field. Our aim is not merely to examine the role of translation in academic settings; it is also to explore the relationships universities might foster with other sites where translation is at work.
