1st International Conference: Translating Minorities and Conflict in Literature 2020 - Spain

Córdoba, Spain, | 2020-06-10 - 2020-06-10

What is the Translating Minorities and Conflict in Literature Conference?

The University of Cordoba is hosting a unique academic-oriented conference that aims to highlight the role of literature translation in giving recognition to minority languages under the context of social inequality and conflict. The conference will not only suit academics specializing in translation, literature, and linguistics but also translators and other language professionals who can learn much from the conference's focus 

This conference will serve as the ideal forum for academics and language professionals alike to contemplate about a world where mainstream languages are championed. Meanwhile, minority languages are sidelined with some even facing extinction due to the forces of globalization along with political, cultural, and societal pressures, and also climate change. The responsibility to protect and empower minority languages couldn’t be more pressing as it has ever been.
