The Department of Translation Studies at the UT College of Foreign Languages and Cultures is orgnizing in collaboration with ENLIGHT partner Ghent University an international conference on „Museums as Spaces of Cultural Translation and Transfer“. The conference is taking place on 10-11 May in Tartu.
The conference allows for broad, metaphorical perspectives on translation and cultural transfer as well as micro-level analyses of translated material. The focus is interdisciplinary, including - but not limited to - translation studies, museum studies and cultural studies. Furthermore, the aim is to promote dialogue between disciplines and languages, but equally between theoretical and practitioner-based research. We encourage original angles, a focus on different types of museums and a wide (cultural) diversity of case studies.
Registration and attendance is free for all members of ENLIGHT universities. Registration will be open until 25 April 2022 (included).
All further information about registration and programme can be found on the conference website https://museumtranslation.ut.ee/.
