With the objective of making translation studies a more visible fixture of the UW undergraduate curriculum, the Translation Studies Hub is thrilled to announce a 2022-2023 grant for new course development. This call enthusiastically encourages all humanities and humanistic social sciences colleagues interested in designing a thematically focused course on translation to send us a 500-750 word syllabus abstract by September 1, 2022.
