Teaching Translation and Interpreting Conference
April 6-7, 2019
Hunter College of the City University of New York
Organized by Margarit T. Ordukhanyan (Hunter College)
Co-sponsored by American Translation and Interpreting Studies Association,
with the participation of the National Language Service
With a growing demand for professionals in the language support services, teaching translation and interpretation is quickly becoming an educational imperative. By bringing together representatives of the industry and the academe, the conference aims to bridge the gap between the way translation is taught and the way it is practiced outside academic institutions. The conference addressed the need for new and innovative approaches to teach aspects of translation and interpretation at all levels of the undergraduate and graduate curriculum. While addressing various perspective and methodologies, the conference seeks to elevate the profile of translation pedagogy as an independent academic discipline and explore its impact on other professional fields.
The event is free and open to the public. NB: if you are not a Hunter student or employee, you must RSVP below and bring a photo ID to get a pass at the main guest entrance (Hunter West).
