Translating America/America Translated Symposium 2.22.19
“Translating America/America Translated” is a two-day faculty-graduate student symposium on new hemispheric geographies and languages in pre-20th-century American literary studies. The symposium is funded by UCHRI and co-sponsoring units at UC Santa Cruz, UC Irvine, and UC San Diego. Highlighting translation, multilinguality and the transnational as indispensable features of literary studies today, the “Translating America/America Translated” symposium aims to re-situate scholarly and public narratives of American culture by way of multiple languages and various origin-points in space and time. It aims to move forward an important national conversation on the future of the field in its multilingual and multi-geographic dimensions and seeks to build a cohort of early-career comparative Americanist scholars.
