Calandra Annual Conference

Translation is a constant presence in the life of migrants, be it in the form of everyday exchanges within multilingual communities or through official contact with public institutions. Translators and interpreters (trained or otherwise) play a fundamental role of mediation in negotiating new environments, making sense of new experiences, and/or devising new strategies of survival and belonging. Translation has and continues to hold a critical role in bridging the local and global, encompassing transnational and translingual issues that concern aspects of the cultural politics of power, emotions, the imagination, and ever-changing individual and collective identities.

This international conference will feature papers and panel discussions on a wide variety of aspects of Italian and Italian diaspora translation. Click here to see the entire program for Friday’s presentations, and click here to see the sessions for Saturday.
