Welcome to NSTS 2017!

The Nida School of Translation Studies exists to advance research in translation through a transdisciplinary approach that brings together varying perspectives and methodologies, challenges traditional disciplinary boundaries, and encourages original thinking about what translation is and the role it plays in a globalized world. The theme of our 2017 session, Translation and Cultural Conversions, invites creative, generative explorations of the many powerful and ethically-charged sites of change and exchange that characterize translational contexts, from traditional notions of religious conversion to contemporary concepts of digital and media conversion, from transformative processes of identity to transformational rewritings of literary texts and the evolution of cultural canons. 

As the time for our gathering in May draws nearer, this site will become a hub of communication and activity. Please take some time to get to know the group by watching the video introductions found here (Getting to know the NSTS Community), and then record your own brief intro so we can meet you too! And be sure to check back often for the latest information, updates and topics of discussion, as well as to access advance reading materials which the faculty may make available.

We look forward to welcoming you in person when you arrive on the beautiful Italian Adriatic seacoast in May! In the meantime, click on the links below to read further important information about travel to and from Misano, as well as about various aspects of the Nida School itself.

Best wishes as you prepare for NSTS 2017!
