Event Details

Whose voice is it anyway? Reflecting on the voices of women in a translation and interpreting context.

Friday 30 September 2016, 5-8pm, University of Edinburgh.

Following the success of last year’s Whose Voice is it Anyway event, we invite you to join us for an evening dedicated to the voices of women in the context of translation and interpreting.

This event will bring together translation and interpreting scholars, practitioners, and the charity sector to reflect on what happens when real and fictional voices are translated.

Speakers include Hephzibah Israel on offensive voices (University of Edinburgh), Şebnem Susam-Saraeva on interwoven voices in blogs (University of Edinburgh) and Marion Winters on emigrant voices in autobiographies (Heriot-Watt University), followed by a round table. Then Arantza Elosua and Elena Zini (interpreters), Lauren Wilks (University of Edinburgh) and Sweety Sharma (Saheliya) will join us for a conversation on translating the voices of women in the context of Gender Based Violence. All discussions will be chaired by Charlotte Bosseaux (University of Edinburgh).

The event is organised by the University of Edinburgh in partnership with the European Commission. It will be followed by a reception (8-9pm), offered by the European Commission.
