WELCOME TO THE TRANSLATION THEME SEMESTER!
During the fall of 2012 we encourage students and faculty at the University of Michigan to explore translation, broadly understood as an interaction between languages, media, cultures, and disciplines.
Where do we encounter translation in our daily lives? What is translation? Who translates? Why translate? What lessons do we learn from translating? How can we make translation more visible?
We approach these questions about translation from numerous perspectives: critical and creative, interdisciplinary and international. In this wider sense, translation is at the heart of our community, our university, and the world at large.
We invite you to browse the resources on this website, to check out the schedule of events on campus, and to share your responses to translation activities on our blog and via twitter.
