A series of lectures, films, courses, theatrical performances and other events will engage Amherst students, faculty, staff, and the general public with issues concerning language in the world today.  Related themes include immigration, journalism, hybrid cultures, international diplomacy, and the role of the humanities in a multicultural society.  Participants will make use of social media and other forms of technology to extend the conversation about translation to a worldwide audience.  Visit the program’s special web page to learn more.
