From:  Prof. Shige (CJ) Suzuki, Department of Modern Languages and Comparative Literature

The Japanese program would like to cordially invite you and your students to attend the "Manga/Comics and Translation" symposium at Baruch College on Thursday, April 6 from 12:40 to 2:05pm in NVC 7-150.

This symposium invites scholars, translators, and professionals to discuss various processes and challenges of translating Japanese-language comics (manga) into English. It will illuminate the relatively invisible “work” of manga/comics translators, including their skills and challenges. In addition, the symposium will also highlight the specific nature of comics/manga medium. Unlike translation of text-based literary works, the translation of comics (manga) involved its media specific elements, including the publishing conventions of comics, reading orders, its formal nature (i.e., the image-word hybrid form), etc.

Please visit the following website for details:  http://blogs.baruch.cuny.edu/japanese/?p=1888
