Images of Terror, Narratives of (In)security: Literary, Artistic and Cultural Responses:23-24 April 2013

One of the greatest paradoxes of the 21st century is the fact that, even though western societies have reached an outstanding scientific and technological development, fear and insecurity continue to be very much alive in public discourse as well as in our private life. Concerns about terrorism, urban criminality, global epidemics, computer piracy and organized crime and, more recently, about the outcomes of the financial and economic crises circulate widely in the media and their highly politicized representations shape much of our everyday life.

Texts in Contexts: New Cultural Constellations in Translation Studies-April 14 to April 16, 2013

updated: 
Tuesday, November 20, 2012 - 5:40am
Translation and Interpreting Institute (TII) Hamad bin Khalifa University, & Bloomsbury Qatar Foundation Publishing, Doha, Qatar

Many scholars argue that the translation of texts operates within an international cultural system in which certain languages, deemed "central," enjoy a cultural and economic monopoly. While the cultural centers formed around these languages tend to dictate the movement of texts to and from so-called "peripheral" languages, such monopolies do undergo transformations. Indeed, once-peripheral languages can find themselves at the center of the international cultural system as historical circumstances shift and change.
