Conference: Key Cultural Texts in Translation, 29-30 April 2014

Posted by an201 at Oct 03, 2013 08:01 PM |
The conference will be the culmination of the AHRC-funded Key Cultural Texts in Translation project, which aims to enhance our understanding of the changes that linguistic and other symbolic representations of identity undergo in translation across times, spaces and media.

The conference will focus on the ways in which cultures define and re-define themselves through the representation in texts and other artifacts (films; paintings ...) of their key concepts. What happens to the images of the initial and the receiving cultures when these representations of key concepts are translated? How are key concepts re-represented? What can we learn from this about how peoples can adjust mutually in times of meetings and migration? (Further information in appendix at the end of this announcement).

There will be two keynote speakers, selections of papers, and discussion sessions aimed at engaging audiences across a number of subjects.
