Translating America/America Translated Symposium

Feb 22–Feb 23, 2019
UC Santa Cruz

Translating America/America Translated is a two-day faculty-graduate student symposium on new hemispheric geographies and languages in pre-20th-century American literary studies. The symposium is funded by UCHRI and co-sponsoring units at UC Santa Cruz, UC Irvine, and UC San Diego. Highlighting translation, multilinguality, and the transnational as indispensable features of literary studies today, the symposium aims to re-situate scholarly and public narratives of American culture by way of multiple languages and various origin points in space and time. The symposium intends to move forward an important national conversation on the future of the field in its multilingual and multi-geographic dimensions and build a cohort of early-career comparative Americanist scholars.
