Found in Translation: Transposing Identity Across Space and Time
Languages Graduate Student Association (LANGSA) – University of Connecticut
Date: November 7, 2014
This year’s LANGSA conference aims to investigate practices of translating, broadly defined, as they pertain to identity, space, and time. This conference seeks to carve a space for both the critical and creative engagements of translators’ work, both in considering the way culture is transposed and in carrying linguistic features from one language to another. Papers need not focus on linguistic translation only, or at all. Papers with a focus on translating culture and in a variety of mediums, styles, and forms are also encouraged. In addition, papers which consider the metaphorical or intersemiotic translation of identity, ideas, or images across space and time are particularly welcome. Readings by literary translators of their recent work in poetry, fiction, or creative non-fiction, are also welcome, as long as they are accompanied by brief commentary on translation praxis.
