Nida Symposium: Translation, History, Methodology

Nida Research Symposium: 

The Intersection Among Translation, History, Methodology

Call for participants. Friday, September 14, 2012, 10am - 4 pm, at The College Board, 45 Columbus Circle (at 61st Street), New York City.

The intersection between translation, history, and methodology is a complex and seldom-explored space in the humanities and social sciences. Disciplinary boundaries partly account for this lack of exploration. But so does the failure of translation studies to gain widespread acceptance and interest in academia. This seminar brings together distinguished scholars whose work is important for the advancement of translation studies as well as for its legitimacy within academic institutions.

Anne Coldiron (Florida State University) and Lawrence Venuti (Temple) will lecture on methodology in translation history and the history of translation theory, respectively. Mary-Helen McMurran (Western Ontario) and Michael Forster (Chicago) will respond.

Fee: $75.00; Registration: Sponsored by the Nida School of Translation Studies. Please contact James Maxey for more information at
