Conferences and Symposia
In 2001 the Nida Institute started a program of cooperation and collaboration at the highest level of research and didactics. This collaboration took the form of international conferences in 2001, 2004, 2007, and 2010 designed to explore vital and timely topics for the theory and practice of all forms of translation.
The conference of 2001 convened in New York City around the theme of Similarity and Difference in Translation.
In 2004, the second conference took place in Rome, at the University of Rome La Sapienza, and explored the theme of Technology and Translation.
In 2007, the third conference took place in Lima, at San Marcos University on the theme of Translation, Identity, and Heterogeneity which has a special importance today because communication, language, and translation have found new frames of reference in a post-modern world characterized by globalization, immigration, and localization.
In 2010, the fourth conference was held in Murcia, Spain with the theme of Translation and Cognition, which occupies a dominant place in the fields of Translation Studies, Linguistics, Brain Research, Psychology, and Cognitive Studies.
In 2011 the model of events changed from conferences to symposia, with the inaugural symposium held in NYC, on September 14.
