Africa: Cultural Translations

Lancaster University, UK 21-22 May 2010

Scholars working on Africa-related topics are often faced with social, cultural or linguistic gaps that open up in the translation from one form of cultural representation to another. This conference seeks to explore translation, not only on a linguistic level, but in relation to the spaces and tensions between one cultural form or practice and another, one medium and another, or between reality and representation.
