Hunter College, CUNY is excited to be hosting its first conference dedicated to teaching translation and interpretation on April 6-7, 2019.

The conference aims to facilitate intellectual exchange and discussion on the overall role of translation and interpretation in the undergraduate and graduate education, from specific pedagogical tools to overarching questions of curriculum structure and program development. The conference will explore developing professional translation and interpretation programs, raising awareness of the importance of translation within global literacy, and developing undergraduate and graduate translation curricula.

The conference seeks to bring together teaching pedagogies that contribute to increasing the visibility of translation and bridging the gap between the growing global demand for translation and interpretation and the underrepresentation of translation in the academic curriculum. 

We invite you to submit presentation proposals on any aspect of the role of translation in the classroom and the foreign language curriculum. Of special interest are the following:
 
•    Translation and Interpretation in the Undergraduate Curriculum
•    Translation and Interpretation in Foreign Languages and Area Studies
•    Translation in Interdisciplinary Context: Creative Writing, Cinema, Performing Arts
•    Translation and Interpretation Across the Curriculum: Minors, Concentrations, Majors, MA Programs
•    Translation and Interpretation and Employment
•    Translation and Technology
•    Translation and Global Literacy
•    Assessing the Current State of Translation and Interpretation in American Colleges and Universities
 
Please submit your proposals (of 250 words or less) to mordukha@hunter.cuny.edu no later than January 1, 2019.
