[Event] Moira Inghilleri: New Perspectives in Translation and Interpreting Studies

About this event

At the fourth of these seminars, editor Michael Cronin will be in conversation with Moira Inghilleri about her book Translation and Migration (Routledge 2017).

Translation and Migration examines the ways in which the presence or absence of translation in situations of migratory movement has currently and historically shaped social, cultural and economic relations between groups and individuals. Acts of cultural and linguistic translation are discussed through a rich variety of illustrative literary, ethnographic, visual and historical materials, also taking in issues of multiculturalism, assimilation, and hybridity analytically re-framed.
