Dear Friends,

This is a gentle reminder that this year’s UNA David Roberts Memorial Lecture will take place in the Auditorium at the Forum at 11am on Saturday 13th October 2018.

The lecture will be given by Professor Joanna Drugan and she will talk about “Language as a human right”

Joanna Drugan is Professor of Translation in the School of Politics, Philosophy, Language and Communication Studies at the University of East Anglia. She is a member of the Translating, Interpreting and Border-Crossing
Research group and she currently leads the Transnational Organised Crime and Translation research project.

In our multi-cultural world, the ethics of language translation and interpretation are growing ever more important and Joanna will discuss the human rights aspect.

Do come and hear a talk on this fascinating subject. Coffee/tea will be served from 10.30am.

Best wishes,
Marguerite
Vice Chair UNA (Norwich & District)
