INTERNATIONAL CULTURAL STUDIES GRADUATE CERTIFICATE PROGRAM
Fall 2006 Speaker Series: Cultural Translation
Cultural translation involves not only the art and craft of the 'literary' or 'technical' translation, but also the many cultural formations that emerge through the global flow of capital, ideas, technologies, exiles, emigrants and refugees. Multiple types of translational identities are produced as global subjectivities become increasingly defined by communication across languages and cultures. Presentations in this series will engage the subject of cultural translation in as broad a way as possible addressing cultural translation across issues of diasporic displacement, nation, gender formation, political practice, hybridity, migration, indigeneity, looking at cultural institutions and practices, communities, the reading of “foreign” films, and translation from one medium to another.
All presentations are free and open to the public.
