THE CENTRE FOR TRANSLATION STUDIES
The Centre for Translation Studies conducts talks, workshops and other allied activities on topics pertaining to the field. The activities of this Centre are of interest to a wide section of the College community and beyond. It opens reflections on languages as registers of distinctive and irreducible cultures, while at the same time emphasizing the cross-cultural need for translation. Through our programmes, we hope to explore the conjunction between the twin aspects of translation, that is, praxis and theory. While literary translation is the focus area of the Centre, we attempt to broaden the range of our speakers to reflect the interdisciplinary reach of translation related processes. One of the recent speakers at the Centre was Prof Margrit Pernau, the historian of emotions, who spoke on the topic “Translating Psychology in the Early Twentieth Century: Abdul Majid Daryabadi and a New Language for Emotions”.
