Translation Now Conference
- All Day on Saturday, September 29, 2018
Boston University has a long tradition of literary translation. BU’s first lecture series on translation was offered in 1978, at a time before Translation Studies was even a recognized field. Since then, invited speakers from around the world, including many of the most accomplished translators and literary figures of the last half-century, have been guests at the Boston University Literary Translation Seminar. The Seminar has in turn fostered the literary careers of generations of BU students, teaching them the art of translation and bringing them into fruitful contact with established translators, editors, publishers, and writers worldwide. Translation Now will celebrate the fortieth anniversary of the Seminar by bringing to Boston some of the most distinguished translators and scholars in the field today.
