I am delighted to report that Professor Charles Forsdick, Leadership Fellow for AHRC in their ‘Translating Cultures’ themed area will be coming to see us at Northumbria on Wednesday 14th January.
The Translating Cultures theme addresses the role of translation, understood in its broadest sense, in the transmission, interpretation, transformation and sharing of languages, values, beliefs, histories and narratives. The area has potential for engagement with many Humanities and Social Sciences disciplines, and a link to further information can be found at this link.
Charles will hold an afternoon session open to all Faculty Staff talking about the work of the AHRC generally, and the activities funded and available under ‘Translating Cultures’. Colleagues will also hear from Northumbria award holders on their projects under this themed area.
The session will be held in the Corry Room in Sport Central at 2pm on 14th January; there will be an opportunity for questions and answers following the talk, and the potential for an allotted slot with Charles to talk about a particular proposal or idea you may have in development.
If you can email my colleague Kerri Jude (firstname.lastname@example.org ) if you wish to come along and we can ensure the room has enough seats to accommodate.
If you would like to book a slot for a one-to-one chat with Charles please let me know. I’ll also send a reminder regaring this event when we are back in the New Year.
Look forward to seeing you there, and very best wishes for Christmas and the New Year!
