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 GOLDEN AGE OF DISINFORMATION: WILL IT DESTROY DEMOCRACY?

THE GOLDEN AGE OF DISINFORMATION: WILL IT DESTROY DEMOCRACY?

Tuesday, April 18, 6.30 – 7.45 pm

In 2017, the world enters a new age of international relations in which standards of diplomacy and protocol will be discarded. Widely accepted norms are being rejected, and facts are considered subjective. News is suspect, intelligence is rebuffed, and our political systems are now fair game for adversarial manipulation. Technology and capitalism have created a perfect storm: the golden age of disinformation. How has global media convergence contributed to the current climate? Has the Internet been a net positive or negative so far for democracy? What hazards does such disinformation pose for the advancement of our understanding, especially as a leading nation in science and technology? Can measures, technical or otherwise, be taken to mitigate the effects of disinformation? Join CGA Futures Lab founder and Good Judgment Project Superforecaster Regina Joseph for a conversation on these and other implications of the emergence of disinformation.
