We are happy to announce the 2nd Ca’ Foscari Summer School on Translation Studies: Humanised technology, automated creativity: bridging illusory divides in translation
Rapid technological developments, especially artificial intelligence and subsequent improvements in free online machine translation, are reshaping the way translators work.
Yet many fear that these technologies may rob translators of their creativity.
But is there really a stark divide between technology and creativity in translation?
The seminars will provide a forum where experiences can be exchanged and new proposals can evolve.
Lectures and seminars are scheduled from June 6th to 10th, 2022, for a total of 30 academic hours of tuition. All activities will be in English.
