LLCL’s Japanese Studies and Translation and Interpreting Studies will host a visit by Professor Takeda Kayoko, who works in the area translation and interpreting studies at the Rikkyo Graduate School of Intercultural Communication, from 12 to 16 May 2014.
Professor Takeda’s research interests cross translation studies and history: she is interested in the role of the translator and interpreter in areas of conflict, and particularly in the context of war crimes trials. She has written Interpreting the Tokyo War Crimes Trial: A Sociopolitical Analysis (Ottawa: University of Ottawa Press, 2010), and has translated Francesca Gaiba’s The Origins of Simultaneous Interpretation: the Nuremberg Trial as ニュルンベルク裁判の通訳 (Tokyo: Misuzu shobō, 2013). She is also pursuing research interests in the conviction for war crimes of Taiwanese interpreters working for the Japanese Imperial Army in local war crimes trials in the wake of World War II.
While at Monash, Professor Takeda will present her research on translation and interpreting during war crimes trials in a public lecture in the evening of Thursday 15 May. She will also discuss her research in a joint seminar on war crimes trials with Marc Orlando and Beatrice Trefalt on 14 May, and conduct a master class for postgraduate students in translation and interpreting studies on 13 May.
Enquiries about Professor Takeda’s visit can be directed to Dr Beatrice Trefalt (firstname.lastname@example.org), in Japanese Studies.
