IV International Conference

The IV International conference of Trayectorias aims to initiate a dialogue between translation studies, Latin American research and historically-oriented musicology on the term „(cultural) translation“, with particular focus on musicians as translators. Topics discussed will include interlingual translation of song and opera texts; intramusical processes, such as arrangement, stylistic developments or compositional technique; intersemiotic translation; and the self-translation performed by polyglot artists.
