About the Event

Important update: This will now be a hybrid event taking place on September 14th to 17th, 2021.

On-site (on campus) attendance will only be available for delegates who are scheduled to speak at the conference; remote online attendance will only be available to some speaker-participants (priority will be given to speakers with travel restrictions).

We will be hosting Panel 6 "Heritage and Art in Translation" as part of the IATIS 2021 International Conference set out to take at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona) in September 2021.

This panel will foreground the role of translation in the mediated  interactions that take place between humans and the cultural heritage  environment, a setting that comprises both tangible and intangible, yet  always politicised, representations of the past in the present. Within  the heritage industry, ‘interpretation’ refers to the ways in which  information is transferred to visitors in order to educate and engage.  But, despite a shared interest in questions of meaning-making,  multimodality, and communication across time and different target  groups, dialogue between Heritage Studies and Translation Studies has  been surprisingly limited. The panel sets out to gain a fuller  understanding of these interdisciplinary points of contact through its  exploration of translation as it pertains to the processes and outcomes  of heritage promotion, education, reception, consumption, conservation  and sustainability.
