Lost (and Found) in Translation

West Conference Room, 4th floor, Rackham Building

In 1922, philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein declared that “the limits of my language mean the limits of my world." With the globally-connected community at the University of Michigan in mind, we invite you to an exploration of the cross-cultural academic expressive production that accompanies thinking and writing from a non-English background. Taking the University of Michigan as a case study, we hope to engage questions of scholarship and public expression incubated in the globalized environment that is the contemporary American university.

How should I introduce myself at a formal dinner? What direction should I pass the bread in? How should I use my fork? Where do I place my napkin? When and how should I raise a toast? What conversation topics are unacceptable? Have you ever wondered about some of these questions?
