Translation Studies GRC Hosts Elizabeth DeNoma, Senior Acquisitions Editor AmazonCrossing

Friday, December 7, 2-3 pm, in Communications 120, Elizabeth DeNoma from AmazonCrossing, the largest U.S. publisher of fiction in translation to English, will join the Multidisciplinary Translation Studies Graduate Research Cluster in a conversation about graduate study, literary translation and jobs outside of academia. DeNoma holds a PhD in Scandinavian Languages and Literature from the University of Washington.

The session will be followed from 3-4 pm by a conversation among any interested UW faculty and graduate students about the possibility of developing a translation hub at the UW, including potential sources for funding and organization.

The UW Multidisciplinary Translation Studies Graduate Research Cluster 2018/2019 promotes translation as a valued form of scholarship in its own right as advocated by the Modern Language Association’s 2007 report on evaluating translation for tenure and promotion, and the MLA’s 2011 guidelines for peer review of translation as scholarship. Our goal is to spark a conversation that will lead to greater opportunities for translation scholarship at the UW, including the possible creation of a translation hub and of translation certificates or degrees.
