The CLACS Runasimi Outreach Committee presents "Translation and Interpretation of Quechua Texts: The Collision Between Two Worlds." The translation of any text into oral Quechua involves a double challenge: it must be addressed to two recipients: the reader and the listener. The great challenge of the Quechua translator is to configure a single speech that is understandable by the reader and the Quechua listener. Professor Odi Gonzales will be speaking on this topic using his extensive experience as a translator of Quechua documents, manuscripts, poetry, and oral tradition from the 16th to the 21st century. Professor Gonzales' talk will be presented in English.
