A one day colloquium on subtitling, translation and adaptation
Friday 13 November 2015, Senate House, London, WC1E 7HU
Thanks to generous funding from the London Arts and Humanities Partnership, Migrating Texts will return on Friday 13 November 2015. Building on what we learnt from Migrating Texts 2014, this time we will focus on specific social issues: increasing accessibility to written and audiovisual texts, inspiring linguistic and intercultural learning, and understanding attitudes to other cultures through the way they are represented in translations, subtitled media and adaptations.
By bringing together leading academics with representatives of the creative and cultural industries, these colloquia provide participants with a unique opportunity to exchange knowledge and explore the opportunities for collaboration between these two, often falsely separated, worlds. The events will showcase the possibilities open to researchers with both language skills and knowledge of texts, whether you want to increase your impact and public engagement, or are looking for alternatives to an academic career.
Before and after the events we will also be posting regular blogs by other experts and industry professionals in subtitling, translation and adaptation to keep the conversation going.
