French-Arabic Translator Richard Jacquemond Speaks at AUC

The Center for Translation Studies held its second event in its Fall 2010 lecture series, In Translation, featuring French-Arabic translator Richard Jacquemond, who delivered an Arabic lecture titled "Translation in the Arab World: Policies and Practice." In his lecture, Jacquemond proposed an analysis of the translation policies established in the Arab world after the end of the Second World War, both by the Arab states and foreign powers. Jacquemond noted that these policies have consistently considered translation as a key of modernization and development processes and are closely connected to an ideology of nation- and state-building.
