Translation Practices: Negotiating Difference (Praxis 2018)

  • 09 Feb 2018
  • 9:30 AM - 2:30 PM
  • University of Washington (Seattle), Cascade Rooms, Haggett Hall

The theme of the UW English Writing Programs’ fourth annual Praxis Conference is “Translation Practices: Negotiating Difference,” where translation is being broadly (yet critically) conceptualized as change
over time, space, identity, modality, language, medium, audience, etc. Given that all communication inherently takes place across difference, how do we respond as educators and learners, especially in historicized contexts where disparities of prestige and access to material or symbolic resources continue
to impact how various literacy and communicative practices are taken up (or not)? What do we stand to gain from bringing translation processes themselves into focus, not just the end-product of translation? What limitations or constraints remain?

NOTIS members will be on the program for this event. Come and join us for a rare local opportunity to blend theory and practice in translation.

Program and registration information will be available soon at https://english.washington.edu/teaching/praxis-2018
