International Conference: "Shifting Paradigms: How Translation Transforms the Humanities."/Urbana, IL/Deadline: April 15, 2010

Levis Faculty Center

This conference will convene scholars and practitioners to present state-of-the-art research on translation and the humanities. In particular, we seek to assess if, and how, academic disciplines comprising the humanities consider translation to be constitutive of their practice.

Translation scholars have called for a paradigm shift in defining the relationship between translation and the humanities. While it is acknowledged that a large share of our common knowledge is conveyed through translation, too little has been said about the way knowledge itself is built and circulated, particularly in the domain of interpretive disciplines.

This collection will look at pop cultural simulations of the real. Topics to be covered could include reality television; living history museums or other tourist sites; simulated violence in entertainment, such as film and professional wrestling; Disneyland; planned residential communities; SecondLife, online gaming, and avatars; online cultural communities; metafiction; and literary hoaxes. Is the "real" strengthened and reinscribed by the copy that acknowledges it, or is the "real" confounded by simulations which ultimately supplant reality with a kind of hyperreality?
