Topic: The Responsibility and Mission of Translation Scholars in the New Era

Abstract: In the new historical era, translation studies in China has grown robustly and rapidly, and has made great contributions to expanding the full scope of foreign language and literature studies and promoting the construction of the discipline. Based on the development of translation studies in China and my extensive personal experience, this paper offers some perspectives on how translation scholars can fulfill their responsibilities and missions in three areas, namely student training, academic research and social services.

The lecture will be conducted in Mandarin with simultaneous interpretation into English on Zoom.
