Translation & Interpretation Workshop Series 2020-2021 @ Online
Oct 2 @ 10:30 am – 3:00 pm

 Dear Members of MSU Language Learning Communities,

 

MSU has organized a Translation and Interpretation Workshop series with three sessions and an expert roundtable in FS20 and a faculty roundtable discussion in SS21. Each workshop includes a language neutral section where general aspects of translation and interpretation will be discussed and a section dealing with translation/interpretation of one of these languages: Japanese, French, or Spanish. Even if you do not speak those languages, everyone will be able to attend the language neutral portion of each workshop. Each workshop will be three hours long (1.5 hours for non-language specific audiences and 1.5 hours for target-specific languages).

 

The language neutral workshop will be organized around four key issues:

(1) Navigating the paths to becoming a professional translator/interpreter

(2) Scoping the field and its future

(3) Learning strategies and methodologies for translation and interpretation

(4) Identifying resources for the translating and interpreting profession.

 

The language specific workshop will be a hands-on workshop focusing mainly on translation and interpretation strategies and methodologies for those languages.

 

Series Overview (detailed information about each event available in the event flyer attached)

Workshop I with Dr. Lili Selden (Oct. 2, 2020): (Japanese)
Workshop II with Ms. Caitilin Walsh (Oct. 9, 2020): (French)

About the Signature Lecture Series

Originally founded as the Celebrity Lecture Series in 1998 by the College of Arts & Letters and the Dean’s Community Council, the series was later renamed the Signature Lecture Series in 20017 and allows notable public figures to interact and engage with the faculty, students, and greater community of Michigan State University through conversations and discussions.

The popularity of this series has attracted some of the most illustrious scholars, critics, novelists, poets, film producers, and creative artists of our time, including Soledad O’Brien, Ken Burns, Oliver Stone, Richard Ford, and Maya Angelou, just to name a few.

Sponsors of the Signature Lecture Series are the following:

  • College of Arts & Letters
  • Broad Art Museum
  • MSU Libraries
  • Department of English
  • Creative Writing Program
  • Film Studies Program
  • Department of Writing, Rhetoric, and American Cultures

This event is being held in collaboration with the MSU Broad Art Museum Artist’s Project Series “John Lucas and Claudia Rankine: Situations” Exhibition. The MSU Broad presents, for the first time in a solo exhibition, the entire series of Situation videos collaboratively produced by documentary filmmaker John Lucas and poet Claudia Rankine since 2008. The videos address the vexed notion of a post-racial United States, a term coined in the Obama era to assert that the election of an African American president indicated the achievement of racial equality, by foregrounding the public and private experiences of black Americans. The exhibition is on February 8-May 31, 2020.
