Call for participants: "Challenges of Translation" Global Humanities Institute, Santiago, July 2019

The CHCI-Mellon Global Humanities Institute on Challenges of Translation entitled "Theoretical Issues, Practical Densities: Violence, Memory, and the Untranslatable" invites applications of advanced graduate students and postdocs from the whole scope of the humanities, including philosophy, literature, translation studies, cultural studies, gender studies, history, law, theory of art, anthropology, and other disciplines able to tackle the multidimensional sphere of translation challenges in transdisciplinary collaboration. 

Hosted by the the Centre of Studies on Philosophy, Humanities, and the Arts in Santiago, Chile from July 15-26, 2019, the aim of this Institute  is to establish an academic exchange articulated on the basis of a multidimensional concept of translation. It will privilege an interdisciplinary approach articulating philosophical, literary and artistic perspectives in order to explore how the task of translation, with its specific problems and performances, becomes a model to rethink urgent and enduring questions in the realms of epistemology (the constitution of representation, the passage of meaning), ethics (responsibility, violence, hospitality), history (temporal economy, memory), and politics (status of the subject, foundation of the community). (See “Lines of Research and Topics”).

The deadline to apply is October 31, 2018. The full call, including requirements and application form, is found here.

Please note that applicants must be affiliated with a CHCI member-organization or a university hosting a CHCI member-organization (see CHCI directory).
