Living in Languages: A Colloquium on Translation - March 22-23, 2023

Living in Languages flier

The Department of English and the Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures present their fifth Living in Languages Colloquium Wednesday and Thursday, March 22 – 23, 2023. It will once again be focused on issues of “translation” broadly understood, in a literal but also expanded sense that can address not only questions of reading and ideology, nor only core theorists whose focus on this topic remains vital, but also translation understood as exile, displacement geographical and linguistic, computer-assisted translation, translation and violence, and the teaching of translation. 

Keynote Wednesday March 22, 12:00 – 1:00 pm – HU 354: “Living Translation: Considerations for Teaching, Research, Creative Activity, and Service.” Regina Galasso, Associate Prof. Spanish & Portuguese Studies and Director of Translation Center, UMass Amherst

Special Session Thursday March 23, 12:45 – 1:30 pm – HU 290: “The Architecture of Language” Benjamin Miller, ENG BA alum now teaching at Emory University, who will speak on language and computational methods.
