Let's talk with ICU students! Online Liberal Arts Lounge

This year, those from around the country and across the world can join!

A new interactive online event, "Online Liberal Arts Lounge," will be held allowing prospective students to connect directly with ICU students to ask about life as an ICU student and more. Due to the Novel Coronavirus Infection, we are unable to host visits to the ICU campus, but this year we will enable conversations between ICU students and prospective students from all over the world via online events. Different ICU students will appear at each session to address your questions and concerns about studying and living at ICU (please check the "Upcoming Events" section to see who will appear at each session).

 Title: "Gender and Translation: 『弟の夫』"
 Speaker: Professor CURRAN, Beverley F. M.
 Description: Gender and translation share complex histories that incorporate different cultural and historical contexts. A term like 'gay culture' is no more homogenous than 'humans'; there are always versions of a term or text and other ways to be in the world. This presentation looks at how gender and translation are linked in terms of cultural metaphor and practice using a variety of examples from Tagame Gengoroh's manga 『弟の夫』, its English translation; and ICU student translations.
