THE TRANSLATOR AS MEDIATOR OF CULTURES will be a day-and-a-half-long symposium on the uses, motives, and effects of translation and their implications for the theory and craft of translation, both written and oral. The event will bring together professional translators as well as philosophers, literary scholars, sociolinguists, and other academics to investigate the increasing importance, in an era of unsettling globalizing forces, of translation and its power to influence literary traditions and shape cultural identities. Deliberations will be opened Friday afternoon, October 20, 2006, in Dana Hall (Mali 1 Auditorium), while a series of panels and papers will follow on Saturday morning and afternoon, October 21, in the Harry Jack Gray Center (Wilde Auditorium).
