Linking Action and Research on Sustainability (LARS) is a joint initiative of McGill professors Elena Bennett and Catherine Potvin and funded by the McGill Sustainability Projects Fund. Our main goal is to give visibility to McGill researchers (profs, graduate students, postdocs) working on positive contributions to sustainability. To do that, we help researchers create videos and we offer a series of brown bag lunches in science communication and outreach.

Call for Papers: International Colloquium - Translation Studies and Geopolitics

Thu, 2014-11-13 13:38

Translation and geopolitics have been inextricably linked since the era of the dragoman, but upheavals at the beginning of this century (the war against terrorism, the war in Iraq, the Arab Spring, the wars in Libya, Syria and the Ukraine, as well as other conflicts with international stakes, including the rise of extremism in Europe) have considerably affected and changed the work conditions of language professionals in general, and that of translators in particular. Languages have always been used to speak about ones enemies, but also with one’s enemies.
