Event description

Description

The students of the Master in Translation Studies at Glendon College, York University, invite you to attend the 9th Annual Graduate Student Conference in Translation Studies to be held at Glendon College in Toronto on March 3, 2018.

Keynote speaker: Valerie Henitiuk, Concordia University of Edmonton

Closing performance by Tasha Beeds, poet and Indigenous Studies scholar

Translation has long played a key role in processes of colonization, often being used as a tool of the colonizer. However, as Indigenous peoples and settler allies have progressively worked toward dismantling oppressive institutions and divesting from colonial power, the function of translation has increasingly expanded to include practices that give voice to colonized and Indigenous peoples and move toward justice, reconciliation, and social solidarity. This year’s graduate conference aims to explore the complex, dynamic relationship between translation and decolonization.

Ticket price includes registration package, as well as lunch and refreshments.
