The UW Translation Studies Hub—a campus-wide start-up initiative sponsored by the UW Simpson Center for the Humanities—invites you to attend "Translation Everywhere: Defining a Future UW Translation Studies Program.” This is the first of a year-long series of working colloquia and guest lectures and will include three presentations:

“Translation and its Publics”
Richard Watts (UW French and Italian/Canadian Studies Center)

“Translation, Circulation, the International Prize System, and World Literature”
Heekyoung Cho (UW Asian Languages and Literature)

“How Kovačič’s Fur Coat Is Made: What a Formalist Analysis Tells Us about the Art of Translation"
Michael Biggins (Slavic Languages and Literatures)

These three brief presentations and group discussion will be followed by a catered reception.

Please RSVP here.

The Translation Studies Hub at the University of Washington aims to coalesce energies on campus and beyond by building on existing and emergent faculty and graduate student research projects, courses, and initiatives in public engagement around translation. Tangible outcomes include increasing the visibility of current research and promoting new research in translation studies, program building at the graduate level (with follow-on effects at the undergraduate level), and creating additional/alternative professional pathways for graduate students.
