Ó Briain Annual Public Lecture - Prof Jan Pedersen, University of Stockholm

Ó Briain Annual Public Lecture - Prof Jan Pedersen, University of Stockholm, 'Subtitling Cultural References: When Mr Rodgers became Donald Duck'.


One of the classic translation problems is cultural references, and when it comes to subtitling the constraints are quite severe: not only is there a shift from spoken to written mode but there is also the question of polysemiotics. In a polysemiotic text, such as a film or a TV programme, the subtitles have to coexist with other semiotic channels, with which they should ideally cohere. This talk presents a model for analysis (and production) of ways in which Extralinguistic Cultural References (ECRs) can be rendered in subtitling. It also explains how Mr Rogers became Donald Duck.

CELT Conversations: The Crowded Curriculum (or How do I cover Everything?)

Following from a successful event before Christmas, CELT is pleased to launch a new series of informal lunchtime conversations on various topics related to teaching and learning.

The format will be to have 3 or 4 people who have prepared a short summary of their experience, or their thoughts on a topic, and then open it out to the room for more in-depth conversation.


The topic "The Crowded Curriculum" will be discussed on Wednesday 29th April. We will be joined by a number of practitioners who will respond to the question and then open it up for discussion.


Everybody is welcome. Tea and coffee will be served. Please confirm with Bernadette Henchy (Bernadette.henchy@nuigalway.ie, ext 2924) so that we can anticipate numbers.
