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.

Ambassador Vale de Almeida previously served as the first EU Ambassador to the United States of America, from 2010 to 2014. In Washington, he actively engaged in strengthening EU/U.S. relations and was critical to the launching of negotiations of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).

Prior to his appointment in Washington, Ambassador Vale de Almeida served as Director General of External Relations of the European Commission, the European Union’s executive body. As the most senior official under the authority of the High Representative/Vice-President, he helped formulate and execute the EU’s foreign policy and played a key role in preparing for the new European External Action Service (EEAS) introduced by the Treaty of Lisbon.

Between 2004 and 2009, Ambassador Vale de Almeida was the Head of Cabinet (Chief of staff and main adviser) for European Commission President José Manuel Barroso. He accompanied President Barroso in all European Council (EU Summit) meetings and ensured coordination with the private offices of Heads of State and Government in all 28 Member States of the EU. He was also the President’s Personal Representative for the negotiations on the Treaty of Lisbon.

Ambassador Vale de Almeida also acted as the EU “Sherpa” for G8 and G20 Summits between 2005 and 2010. In this capacity he prepared and attended annual G8 Summits in Gleneagles, UK; St Petersburg, RU; Heiligendamm, DE; Toyako-Hokkaido, JP; L’Aquila, IT; and Muskoka, CA. He accompanied President Barroso in the launching of G20 Summits in late 2008 in Washington and in subsequent meetings in London, Pittsburgh and Toronto in 2009 and 2010. He also attended Summit meetings with EU’s strategic partners around the world and with the Secretary General of the United Nations.

Earlier in his career in the European institutions, João Vale de Almeida held several senior positions in the European Commission and the Economic and Social Committee and worked closely in different capacities with and under the authority of former Commission Presidents Jacques Delors, Jacques Santer and Romano Prodi.

Immediately before joining President Barroso’s team in 2004, João Vale de Almeida held a senior position in the Directorate General for Education and Culture after serving as Deputy Chief Spokesman of the European Commission.

João Vale de Almeida joined the European Commission in 1982 at its Delegation in Lisbon, after spending seven years as a journalist. He holds a degree in History from the University of Lisbon and has studied and received training in journalism and management in the United States, France, Japan, and the United Kingdom. Ambassador Vale de Almeida was decorated in 2011 by the President of the Republic of Portugal with the ‘Grã-Cruz da Ordem do Infante D. Henrique’ (Grand Cross of the Order of Prince Henry the Navigator).

João Vale de Almeida is Portuguese; he was born in Lisbon in 1957. He is married, has two children and recently became a grandfather.
