This post has a historical flavour, although it’s always surprising how much from the past is still relevant today…

The Kent Centre for European and Comparative Law invites participation in an international conference entitled “Comparative Law: Engaging Translation” to be held at Kent Law School, Canterbury, UK on 21-22 June 2012.
The conference’s main assumption is that the question of comparative law is through and through one of translation. Yet, even in today’s globalised world where the need to communicate beyond borders arises in ways that are possibly unprecedented, most comparatists, for reasons which participants will want to explore, continue not to address the issue of translation as it pertains to comparative law.
This conference seeks to attract critical and interdisciplinary papers that will draw on fields such as translation studies, linguistics, literary theory, sociology, philosophy or postcolonial studies in order to analyse the central role of translation in comparative law.
