Twin Translation Conference Weekend 2017
10:00 AM

NYU Event Space

7th  Annual Translation Studies Research Symposium on Complexity and Translation: Friday, October 20, 2017 10:00AM-3:30PM

Since its first session was convened in 2007, the Nida School of Translation Studies has sought to advance research in translation through active collaboration with scholars from around the globe, bringing together diverse perspectives and methodologies, challenging traditional disciplinary boundaries, and encouraging original thinking about what translation is and where it takes place in a globalized world. As part of this effort, each fall since 2011, NSTS has held a high-level research symposium in New York City, a creative event that brings into dialogue varied perspectives on an established theme. Since 2015, the Center for Applied Liberal Arts at NYU’s School of Professional Studies has joined forces with NSTS and the San Pellegrino Foundation (Italy) to carry forward this tradition of a one-day translation-oriented research event. This year’s symposium on Friday, October 20 will focus on the theory of complexity, as we explore together the lessons and implications for Translation Studies that can be drawn from this dynamic field.

2nd Annual Translation Day Symposium on Technologies in Translation: Saturday, October 21, 2017 10:00AM-4:00PM

From mobile apps to CAT tools, machine translation and data management systems, the way in which translators and interpreters work has gone through significant transformation in recent years. How has this affected our profession and how do we prepare ourselves for the rapidly changing technologies in the future? How will these new technologies change the profile of the translator? In celebrating the 6th year of the NYUSPS MS in Translation, and as part of a twin conference with the Nida School of Translation Studies, NYUSPS Center for Applied Liberal Arts presents the 2nd Annual Translation Day Symposium on Saturday, October 21, 2017. This one-day event invites colleagues, students, and friends to converge and discuss issues around technologies and new media in translation and interpreting, while we reflect upon the state of the language profession and where it's headed.

CALA FALL 2017 FILM SERIES: THE BLACK CAT (1934)- Introduction: Eric Myers & Howard Mandelbaum
6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Downtown
NYU Event Space

LIGHTS, CAMERA, DECO!: A Cinematic Celebration of Art Deco's International Influence. In conjunction with the Art Deco Society of New York. The Art Deco style arguably originated at the Exposition Internationale des Arts Decoratifs et Industriels in Paris in 1925, where it left  a mark on many designers including Cedric Gibbons, art director for the film Grand Hotel. The Art Deco style would appear in over 1500 films—from Metropolis to The Artist—across the following decades. Art Deco was a truly international style, influencing architecture, fashion, and the design of all objects from perfume bottles to cars. Art Deco moved away from the floral, ornamental patterns of the past to the streamlined, modern shapes of the future. At the same time it embraced and exoticized design motifs from Asia, South America, Egypt, and Africa. Art Deco’s clean and geometric lines complemented the black and white movies of the era and created enduring iconic cinematic images. Please join SPS’s Center for Applied Liberal Arts in collaboration with the Art Deco Society of New York this Fall in celebrating Art Deco’s impact on cinema around the world.

THE IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL: ITS FUTURE AND GLOBAL IMPLICATIONS


Wednesday, April 12, 12 – 2 pm

 

The “Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) Regarding the Islamic Republic of Iran’s Nuclear Program” was an international agreement reached July 2015 between the permanent members of the UN Security Council (China, France, Russia, the UK, and the US) plus Germany and Iran to cap Tehran’s capabilities to build nuclear weapons. Supporters of the agreement hailed it as an effective way of curtailing Iran’s nuclear ambitions. Opponents saw it as being ineffective while also allowing Iran greater power in the region. The Trump administration has been largely critical of the deal and has avowed to either tear it up or implement it more vigorously. What are the likely repercussions of the Trump administration’s stated plan, not only on Washington’s relations with Iran, but also on other parties to the agreement? Is this likely to lead Iran to develop nuclear weapons? Will it increase the prospects of conflict in the region?  CGA Visiting Scholar WPS Sidhu examines these questions and others with a distinguished panel of experts.

 

Panelists:

Patrick Clawson, Morningstar senior fellow and director of research, Washington Institute for Near East Policy Robert Einhorn, former Secretary of State's Special Advisor for Nonproliferation and Arms Control; Senior Fellow, Brookings

Suzanne Di Maggio, Director and Senior Fellow, the New America Foundation
