Lost and Found in Traducture


Lost and Found in Traducture

This event has concluded.

The colloquium was aimed at creating an intercultural dialogue on the dynamics of translation and traducture as a lever for multiple knowledge management (in IKM in relation to international development practice. The notion traducture is based on the assumption that translation takes place in complex contexts in the source and target cultures and its invisibility impacts on development practice, knowledge itself, intercultural dialogue and social justice. We will explore the intercultural space where traducteurs are key players in local, national and international arenas driving the knowledge management processes. The colloquium brought together participants from interdisciplinary backgrounds to share insights and experiences through a range of artefacts, tools and methodologies. The colloquium highlighted insights gained from Northern, Diaspora and Southern knowledge management practices and their intersections or lack of it. The anticipated outcome of the colloquium was to enhance knowledge development, management and capacity building and strengthen policy and communities of practice to improve international development.
