TRANSLATION IN A MOBILE WORLD: On language, justice and social cohesion
October 19, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
Globalization, migration, sustainable development are some of the key issues in today’s world and they appear as recurring keywords in cultural debates. The role played by languages in all of these areas, however, is often underestimated, with little attention paid to how translation and interpreting can support social cohesion and social justice in increasingly multilingual communities. Drawing on the experience of working with different constituencies, from migrant artists in the US and Australia to health specialists in Namibia and Zambia, this talk will draw attention to translation as a constitutive practice of our everyday lives and to translation awareness as a vital “citizenship skill.”
