Translation is prevalent in many aspects of life, whether one works between languages or across cultural divides. While recognizing that translation is often thought of as communication between languages, we wish to expand on this concept with the aim of addressing issues of identity, tradition, relationships, responsibility, and forms of culture. If translation happens each time something different, new, or unexpected is confronted or experienced, then it is basic to almost any register of human life. This conference will reexamine these ideas by considering translation alongside transcendence.
