This conference brings together faculty who teach translation studies in various forms to discuss teaching methods that are currently in place, as well as the place and function of translation in the university curriculum. In what faculties or schools, departments or programs is translation situated? How does the definition of translation depend on and vary with its institutional site? What curricula have been developed, at the graduate or undergraduate level, to support that definition? What career prospects are created by studying translation at a college or university? The conference aims to enable an exchange of ideas that can improve pedagogy, with an eye toward creating lines of communication among departments, programs, and institutions.
