In the second event of our translation series, Prof. Wei Ran will be exploring the “Latin American Thought Translation Series” as a case study for remapping the relations between China and the world. He will discuss the selection and translation of Latin American texts by the contemporary Chinese academic community, which followed a shift from the revolutionary paradigm of translation to the paradigm of modernization since the 1980s. The talk will be followed by a Q&A.

All are welcome to join!
