chairsThe Translation Studies Initiative at Rutgers fosters intellectual and creative exchange among students and faculty engaged in making, analyzing, and conceptualizing translation across the Humanities at Rutgers University. The initiative serves as a dynamic and collaborative home for the diverse interdisciplinary work happening across campus and hosts new and cutting-edge dialogues, projects, and conversations about, in, and on translation.

To mark our launch in 2022-23, we will offer new undergraduate and graduate courses, a lecture series, roundtables, translation workshops, collaborations with Rutgers University Press, and a symposium in Spring 2023. We will also celebrate International Translation Day on September 30, and in February, host our 5th annual Translate-a-Thon.

Please take a moment to look around the site for more information about our classes, projects, and upcoming events.
