Translation on Tap in NYC, Aug. 1 – 15, 2015


Translationista hard at work

So apparently it’s summer and all the translators are at the beach. I haven’t heard of a single translation event coming up this fortnight. If I’ve missed something, please advise! Otherwise, as you were.

Share this!


  1. Hi. This is Jafar, a PhD student of Translation Studies at SUNY Binghamton. I just came across your beautiful blog when I was searching something about Friedrich Lücke, one of the Schleiermacher’s student that I’m writing an article on his hermeneutical translation treaties. Not sure if you’ve heard of this Symposium but I think it’s gonna be provocative if there could be again the same sort of debates as that of last year on “Translation Research” between Lydia Liu and David Damrosch. Check it out please.
