March 28 WorldCanvass will ask: What’s in a Word? The Translator’s Challenge

On the next WorldCanvass, we’ll explore the act of reading and dive into this space where social and symbolic power is enforced. We’ll also discuss how re-translations shape transnational, literary, and cultural relations and ask what arts and humanities perspectives need to be reasserted in a digitized world where algorithms increasingly read us. Join us on March 28 for WorldCanvass when the topic is “What’s in a Word? The Translator’s Challenge.” The program, which is free and open to the public, takes place at MERGE, 136 South Dubuque Street, Iowa City, from 5:30-7 p.m. All are invited to a pre-show reception from 5-5:30 p.m.
