On the 20th of June, the day before the start of Performing Translation, Project DaRT, in collaboration with CASiLaC and the College of Arts, Celtic Studies and Social Sciences at UCC will hold a PhD masterclass entitled Intercultural Conversations: Community, Translation and Cultural Representation. This masterclass will be relevant to students and staff across the Social Sciences and Humanities interested in exploring the challenges of representation across languages and cultures and those interested in the notion of translation as performance and new understandings of the identity, agency and role of those involved in linguistic and cultural mediation.
