The theme of the inaugural Glendon Translation Research Summer School, to be held from June 22-26, 2015, is “Translation, Language, and Place”, and it will be led by Prof. Sherry Simon. Researchers will discuss the relationship between language, translation, and the imaginaries of a place and its cultural history, and how language and translation enact, respond to, and shape place. We encourage graduate students, faculty, and independent scholars working on projects related to the theme to apply. Possible research topics can include—although they are not restricted to—the relationship between translation and cities, translation and borders, translation and national languages, translation ecologies and landscapes, exile and belonging, and translation and territory.

Applications must be received by April 3rd, 2015 (deadline extended). Applicants should submit: a) an updated CV indicating relevant publications; b) a two to three-page statement of interest including a detailed project description. Admitted applicants will be notified of their acceptance in April (individuals may request earlier notification). Participants will be issued a certificate of attendance.

A fee of $650CAD provides for tuition and meals. This fee should be paid before the event. You will find information about the application process, registration fees, and other useful information on the summer school webpage. You may also contact Prof. María Constanza Guzmán at mguzman@glendon.yorku.ca.
