News & Announcements for French and Italian

Just Published: “Translation as Innovation: Bridging the Sciences and the Humanities”, co-edited by Patricia Phillips-Batoma

“Translation as Innovation: Bridging the Sciences and the Humanities” was the theme of the second biennial conference coordinated through a partnership between the Center for Translation Studies at the University of Illinois and the Centre d’Études sur la Traduction at the University of Paris Denis-Diderot. The proceedings of that conference, collected here, examine the role of translation in the transmission of knowledge, particularly in the sciences, recognizing translation as a non-neutral activity and instead as an act that may enhance topic awareness or even generate debate. Patricia Phillips-Batoma received her PhD in French from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She teaches courses for the professional track of the MA in Translation and Interpreting, and has an affiliate appointment with the Department of French and Italian.
