Translation Conference

On February 28, more than 50 people attended the conference “Translating the post (human)ities: Towards the transitional university” organized by Professor Salah Basalamah from the School of Translation and Interpretation. The guest speaker was Professor Michael Cronin from Trinity College Dublin, Ireland. Mr. Cronin discussed, with climate change in mind, the need to question our assumptions, and whether universities as they are currently constituted are capable of the development of a critical knowledge that meets the current and future needs of our species. According to Mr. Cronin, the practice of ecologically informed translation could not only change how we might approach the translator's task but also challenge conventional assumptions about the organisation of knowledge. Thank you to the Centre for Legal Translation and Documentation for sponsoring the event.
