“Translating Across Time and Space” is an international interdisciplinary conference that brings together a range of scholars, practitioners, and community leaders to discuss the ways archival collections and scholarly fieldwork can help preserve and revitalize endangered languages and cultural practices in indigenous communities throughout North America. Conference panels pay particular attention to the legal and ethical issues archives and scholars face when working with indigenous materials, the ways technologies have forged new forms of cross-cultural collaborations, the influence of past policies on the present, and best practices for pedagogy. Brief papers will be precirculated in order to encourage conversation and dialogue during the conference.
Cosponsored by Penn Humanities Forum.
