20-21 February 2015, Department of Languages and Culture Studies, UNC Charlotte, USA

Multilingualism was born as soon as men and women began to speak. Nevertheless, throughout history there have been multiple attempts to limit the scope/number of languages--often due to politics or the desire for convenience. This on-going effort has involved the systematic use of a lingua franca (currently English, historically others) or the utopic quest for an ideal vehicular language such as Volapük or Esperanto. In any event, linguistic diversity has never really been threatened and the translation process(es) have always been considered at the very core of human exchange. Yet today translation plays and has to play an even more important role than before in a context where the magnitude of globalization reinforces the hegemonic dream of a neatly constructed homogenized culture whose range is supposed to move us toward the universal.

During our symposium, we will tackle a variety of issues that characterize the complex relationship between translation and globalization.
This symposium is organized both by the Department of Languages and Culture Studies, UNC Charlotte, represented by Sheri Spaine Long, Chair, and the research team E.A. 1087 Espaces Humains et Interactions Culturelles, Université de Limoges, represented by Bertrand Westphal.
