Queering Translation Caucus Spring Roundup set for May 23rd at 1pm PST

You are invited to the Queering Translation Caucus Spring Zoom Roundup!

For security purposes, if you wish to attend, please contact Jon Jaramillo at jonj@uoregon.edu to be put on the guest list and given the Zoom link and passcode.

Please join us on Zoom to catch up with fellow translators who you met at last summer’s ALTA 43’s Queer Translation Caucus and build on the success of our first meeting. We would like to continue to build our queer(ing) translation community and tell you about some exciting initiatives in the works. We look forward to your comments and suggestions about:

  1. organizing a queering translation colloquium where translators and academics can present projects
  2. creating a directory of queer(ing) translator profiles, with a list of publications, languages they translate, generic specialties, and contact information (we need to decide where to host the directory)
  3. growing the non-profit Queer Translation Collective by establishing a board of directors, an editorial board, and laying the groundwork for the publishing of a biannual digital zine on queering translation

Your input will help us build consensus and make decisions. We will have two breakout room sessions: the first will be a more intimate meet and greet and brainstorming about the colloquium, the second (optional) session will be devoted to business related to the QT Collective. In both sessions we will have shared document links posted so you can share your ideas. Those with the link and passcode can attend. We will use a waiting room for security.
