St Jerome Celebration of Translation: Saturday, September 30, 2017

Posted on: Sep 11, 2017

All are welcome to the 15th annual St Jerome Celebration of Translation, on Saturday, September 30 at CUE.

The theme this year is “Translation and Truth,” with a focus on Indigenous texts and traditions.

This conference includes a key panel dealing with language revitalization, featuring Dr. Sarah Shulist (a linguistic anthropologist at MacEwan University who works on the Indigenous languages of Brazil); Darrell Anderson (who, through his consultancy Osaw Maskwa, promotes the Cree language); and Maria Campbell (Metis Elder and author of many works, including the 1973 classic Halfbreed).

On the afternoon preceding the scholarly gathering, there will also be a series of readings by translators from their work in various languages. Honoured guests include Inuk Elder Mini Aodla Freeman (author of Life Among the Qallunaat) and Papaschase Chief Calvin Bruneau.
