Professor Heim was a pioneer in translation studies\, which is now an area of considerable significance to the field of comparative literature. He is remembered by his colleagues\, students and friends as a world-class scholar\, a model pedagogue and a devoted mentor\, generous in his commitment to a communication and understanding across languages and cultures\, giving pride of place to translation. \nThis year’s featured lecturer will be Maureen Freely. Maureen Freely is a writer with seven novels to her name and many other strings to her bow.  Well known as a translator of the Turkish Nobel Laureate Orhan Pamuk\, she has also brought into English several classics and works by Turkey’s rising stars.  For many years she worked as a journalist in London\, writing about literature\, social justice\, and human rights.  As chair of the Translator’s Association and more recently as President and Chair of English PEN\, she has campaigned for writers and freedom of expression internationally.  She teaches at the University of Warwick. \n URL: LOCATION:Kaplan Hall 193\, CA\, United States ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg: END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
