Workshop: Translational Checkpoints

Call for participation

The Translation T of the Transculturation, Translation, Transmission Research profile at the Department of Languages and Literatures will be hosting a workshop on Translational Checkpoints in the Creative Industries from 1-2 December 2015 at Humanisten, University of Gothenburg.

Building on the results of the conference of the same name we held in September, this workshop will focus on translation as a morphing tool: shaping, converting, adapting the object being transferred as well as its contexts.

The object of this workshop is to review the results of the previous conference and discuss ideas for further meetings that galvanise interdisciplinary cooperation between scholars as well as between scholars and practitioners.
