Venuti - 2014

"I don't think I've participated in a similar event with as high a level of informed engagement as the NSTS. Bringing together scholars of translation and Biblical scholars--groups whose interests often overlap but who don't always have the opportunity to meet--generates provocative conversations and serendipitous discoveries. When you consider that the professors, lecturers, and associates come from such far-flung locations, you become aware not only that translation studies constitutes an international community of researchers, but that it represents one way of addressing the linguistic and cultural inequalities that structure the global exchange of ideas today." 

(Lawrence Venuti, Temple -- Nida Professor 2014)
