LSA Translation Theme Semester Fall 2012
Where do we encounter translation on campus, in our community, and in the world at large? What is translation? Who translates? Why translate? How can we make translation more visible? Faculty and students at the University of Michigan participated in the Fall 2012 Translation Theme Semester, a college-wide initiative coordinated by the Department of Comparative Literature and sponsored by the College of Literature, Science and the Arts. For more information visit the theme semester website.
