A three-week institute for twenty-five college and university faculty to examine the nature of translation and its central place in the humanities.

The Center for Translation Studies at the University of Illinois (UIUC) proposes a three-week institute bringing 25 college and university teachers (including three doctoral students) to Urbana-Champaign to examine the nature of translation and its central place in the humanities. Leading scholars in literature, philosophy, religion, and the new interdisciplinary field of translation studies will guide participants through a general overview of the field and four case studies, each designed to illustrate the complex role of translation within and across cultures. Through these cases, the participants study translation as a scholarly craft and cultural dynamic, exploring its historical, philosophical, poetic, and political dimensions and its impact on languages, literatures and cultures. Participants will develop their own case studies as a starting point for broadly disseminating the work of the Institute to the Academy.
