Translation and Transmission in the Early Americas
Washington, DC & University of Maryland, College Park, MD/USA
May 19 – 22, 2016
Continuing in the tradition of the “First Early Ibero/Anglo Americanist Summit” (Tucson, AZ, 2002), “Beyond Colonial Studies” (Providence, RI, 2004), and “Early American Borderlands” (St. Augustine, FL, 2010), this event will bring together scholars of the early Americas working in various languages and disciplines in order to exchange questions, ideas, research and teaching methods as we promote comparative perspectives and cross-disciplinary dialogues.
Proposals for papers, roundtables, workshops, and traditional panels are invited from graduate students, faculty, and independent scholars submitted. Please include a short CV with your proposal, submitted before May 15, 2015, at http://oieahc.wm.edu/conferences/supported/translation/cfp/. Accepted panels will be posted on the conference website for submission of additional paper proposals in September.
Topics to consider might include:
•translations of religious, doctrinal, or catechetical materials
•scientific writing and new forms of knowledge
•print histories and lettered forms of dissemination
•non-alphabetic transmissions of knowledge
•multilingual communities of the early Americas
•the relationship of language, race, and ethnicity
