Please join us for lunch and learn more about the Translation Study Abroad program and how you can join us this summer in the European Union. RSVP to Elizabeth Mosley (emosley@illinois.edu) by Friday, February 8th, so that we will know how much food to order. The purpose of this two-week intensive study abroad course is to expose students to the dynamics of the geo-political environment of the European Union and provide hands-on experience with the translator's role and responsibility as mediator and communicator in today's European multi-lingual and multi-cultural societies. It is open to undergraduate and graduate students in any major who are interested in pursuing the Certificate in Translation Studies. This course will be of particular interest to students in foreign languages, cultures, and linguistics, political science, international studies, European Union Studies, law and business. The program consists of behind-the-scenes visits to international agencies and cultural sites relevant to language and culture studies. Countries visited include Belgium and France. This experience can lead to internships in the EU.
