Theme: Translation and Cultural Conversions
The theme of our 2017 session, Translation and Cultural Conversions, invites creative, generative explorations of the many powerful and ethically-charged sites of change and exchange that characterize translational contexts, from traditional notions of religious conversion to contemporary concepts of digital and media conversion, from transformative processes of identity to transformational rewritings of literary texts and the evolution of cultural canons. Join us for a stimulating time of discussion and discovery, led by our two distinguished Nida Professors and a diverse roster of additional faculty lecturers.
Nida Professors: Lydia Liu (Columbia) and Naomi Seidman (GTU, Berkeley)
