Translation and Cultural Conversions

San Pellegrino University Foundation,
Misano Adriatico (Rimini), Italy
May 22 – June 2, 2017
Nida Professors: Lydia H. Liu, Columbia University; Naomi Seidman, Graduate Theological Union
The Nida School of Translation Studies exists to advance research in translation through a transdisciplinary approach that brings together varying perspectives and methodologies, challenges traditional disciplinary boundaries, and encourages original thinking about what translation is and the role it plays in a globalized world. The theme of our 2017 session, Translation and Cultural Conversions, invites creative, generative explorations of the many powerful and ethically-charged sites of change and exchange that characterize translational contexts, from traditional notions of religious conversion to contemporary concepts of digital and media conversion, from transformative processes of identity to transformational rewritings of literary texts and the evolution of cultural canons. Join us for a stimulating time of discussion and discovery, led by our two distinguished Nida Professors and a diverse roster of additional faculty lecturers.
