The cutting edge of translation research is shifting. Technological and societal developments in recent years have seen dramatic changes in the ways translated texts are produced, used, and appraised. These changes have created ground-breaking new research themes, ranging from ethics and technology, to identity and crowd-sourcing. The Advances in Translation Research series will act as a platform for scholars at the forefront of these emerging research themes to demonstrate the expanding breadth of translation research today, to help illustrate its exciting implications for every domain of study, and to foster innovation and collaboration. The series will be free to attend, and will welcome everyone interested in knowing more about translation. No registration required.
The seminars will be at:
Institute of Modern Languages Research
University of London
School of Advanced Study
Malet Street, London WC1E 7HU
The first seminar is scheduled for 04/11/2015, and will see Luis Perez-Gonzalez of the University of Manchester discuss radical uses of translation that affect social or political change.
