The Michael Henry Heim Memorial Lecture

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 is organized annually by the UCLA Departments of Comparative Literature and Slavic, East European and Eurasian Languages and Cultures, with support from the UCLA Center for European and Eurasian Studies and the Division of Humanities. The 2020 Heim Memorial Lectue in Translation and Translation Studies will be held on May 11, 2020. Please check the “Events” page for event details, including speaker name and bio, lecture title and abstract, and time/location information, closer to the event date.
