The Michael Henry Heim Memorial Lecture in Translation and Translation Studies was most recently held on November 5, 2015.

The lecture opened with remarks by Sina Rahmani. Remarks were followed with a special lecture by Dubravka Ugrešić  on “Transnational vs. National Literature.”

The Michael Henry Heim Memorial Lecture in Translation and Translation Studies is an annual lecture in memory of Michael Heim to continue his legacy. 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.

This event was organized by the UCLA Department of Comparative Literature, with support from the UCLA Department of Slavic, East European and Eurasian Languages and Cultures and the UCLA Center for European and Eurasian Studies.
