Leading Edges in Translation: World Literature and Performativity
18-29 May 2015 in Misano, Italy
The application period for the 2015 Nida School of Translation Studies is now open and will remain open until January 31, 2015. The Nida School of Translation Studies (NSTS), an annual two-week seminar, brings together experts from translation studies, religious discourse translation, and other cognate disciplines in a fully transdisciplinary working environment. Each seminar critically explores translation theory, linguistics, semiotics and cultural studies as they pertain to a well-defined topic or problem. Their transdisciplinary nature allows theorists and practitioners from many fields to cross disciplinary and methodological boundaries and develop new ways of thinking about translation and other fields of research.
The 2015 Nida School will take place May 18-29, 2015 on the San Pellegrino University Foundation campus in Misano Adriatico, Italy. It will explore the theme of "Leading Edges in Translation: World Literature and Performativity" with Nida Professors Susan Bassnett (University of Warwick) and Sandra Bermann (Princeton University). As past faculty member Timothy Beal (Case Western Reserve University) has reflected, "NSTS offers just the kind of experience so many of us long for: a genuinely collegial intellectual community in which scholars with different backgrounds and research interests come together in ways that are generative of new questions and perspectives," We are confident that this ninth iteration of the school will once again offer a very rich time of study and discussion together.
