"Tasking the Translator" conference

from Cornell Chronicle

Anne Carson, winner of the 2001 T.S. Eliot Prize for Poetry, will be keynote speaker for a conference titled "Tasking the Translator," to be held March 11 and 12 at Cornell. The conference features artists and scholars from the United States and abroad, including a presentation by Barcelona-born multimedia artist Antoni Muntadas.

"Globalization produces rich new possibilities for linguistic innovation and experimentation, as well as threatening the continued existence of a wide array of linguistic and literary practices, translation is bound up with our modes of transmitting knowledge and the past, as well as our very ability, as global intellectuals, to address each other."
