"Esoteric" is a word I often get from people who ask me what my PhD project is all about. I don't blame them, really. After all, by attempting to analyse a 17th-century grammar of the Tagalog (Filipino) language through the framework of postcolonial translation, I feel that one important lesson to be had is that labelling, instead of being a category imposed from the outside, should probably come from within.

Who we are

The blog At best an echo, inspired by the words of English writer George Henry Borrow, who said that "Translation is at best an echo," is owned and maintained by the Social Media and Outreach Team of the International Association for Translation and Intercultural Studies (IATIS) with the aim of fostering an active and vibrant online presence for the organization and its members, especially in the lead-up to the Fifth International IATIS Conference, which will be held in Belo Horizonte, Brazil in July 2015.
