Translation Studies in Ukraine as an Integral Part of European Context
On the 24 February 5,00 am, the whole world was shocked and shattered by the unimaginably cruel Russian aggression in Ukraine. Such war – in the 21st century and on the European continent – is a direct assault on core European values of democracy, freedom, and the respect for human rights.
In the light of the current situation, the organizers of this event as researchers in Translation Studies and practicing translators and interpreters find it their duty to help disseminate the results of research into translation done in Ukraine and by doing so support their deep conviction that Ukraine shares European values and is – and has always been – an integral part of Europe.
The international conference takes place on 12 and 13 May, venue: Filozofická fakulta UK, Bratislava + online.
The goal of this event is to present the current state of Translation Studies in Ukraine so as to make clear the fact that its culture – literature, art, research, education – is an inherent part of the European context.
