The UO Translation Studies Working Group (TSWG), supported by the UO Global Studies Institute (GSI, formerly Global Oregon), consists of a diverse group of faculty, graduate students, and active professional community members and emeriti who work across languages and disciplines in the area of Translation Studies. We pursue research, teaching, and practice related to multiple forms of translation. As a group we are committed to exploring interdisciplinary aspects of these endeavors.
The TSWG oversees the Graduate Specialization in Translation Studies. The Specialization aims to strengthen and enrich opportunities for UO students by drawing on existing offerings across disciplines and, where possible, adding to the current curriculum, in Languages, Literatures, Anthropology, International Studies, and Folklore at UO. In this way, the Specialization contributes to strengthening graduate offerings in this vital and complex field. Importantly, the Specialization will work to bring forward the profile of UO as an institution committed to globalized, international intellectual approaches generally and to the increasingly prominent area of Translation Studies specifically. The Specialization will take effect in September 2015.
