Translating Ways of Seeing: Textual, Visual and Metaphorical Transmigrations

Presiding Officer: 
Sufen Lai, Grand Valley State University

In this post-colonial, global, digital and hyper-textual century, how do we negotiate the dual concepts of “fidelity” and “transparency” that dominate the current translation practice? How do we translate cultural metaphors and aesthetics? And how do we translate different ways of seeing and perceiving? This session intends to present interdisciplinary dialogue about translating across forms and translating ways of seeing in multicultural contexts and genres.
