This collaborative project aims to further coalesce interest in translation on campus and beyond by building on existing and emergent faculty and graduate student research projects, courses, and initiatives. Each activity aims for the tangible outcome of consolidating and promoting increased current and new research in translation studies, program building in translation studies at the graduate level (with follow-on effects at the undergraduate level), and the creation of additional and alternative professional pathways for graduate students.
