Crises of Empathy: Translation and Migration

Migration and humanitarian crises as well as economic forces continue to disperse people around the globe. The resulting collisions of nation, language, and culture create narratives requiring interpretation and translation—forcing interpreters and translators to answer sociopolitical questions and navigate territory and testimony that goes well beyond the linguistic. With Lina Mounzer, Jonathan Blitzer, and Sahand Keshavarz Rahbar. Moderated by Allison Markin Powell.

Tickets are free and reservations will be available soon.
