Spring School for Translation Studies, Stellenbosch, South Africa, 29 Nov-4 Dec 2010

Just came round on the Translatio list, and may be of interest to some readers:

Are you involved in translation studies in Africa?
Do you want to decolonise your mind as a translator?
Then you should not miss the second Spring School for Translation Studies in Africa!

The Department of Afroasiatic Studies, Sign Language and Language Practice (DASL) at the University of the Free State and the Department of Afrikaans and Dutch at the University of Stellenbosch in South Africa are presenting the Second School for Translation Studies (SSTSA) in Africa from 29 November to 4 December 2010. This year's school is hosted by the University of Stellenbosch.

The Summer School is presented for doctoral students and/or lecturers in translation studies and intercultural communication from all over Africa with the aim of working towards an African agenda for translation studies. The Summer School features lectures, tutorials, and conference presentations under the guidance of prominent scholars in Translation Studies, Intercultural communication and Lexicography.

The aim is for the Summer School to become an annual event on the continent.
