EUVOLIA Students Met Vakhtang Kebuladze

Thursday, March 14, a group of EUVOLIA students from the Faculty of Foreign Philology enjoyed a 4-hours workshop in translation given by one of the most prominent intellectuals of modern Ukraine, Dr. Vakhtang Kebuladze (Kyiv Taras Shevchenko National University, Ukraine). In his introductory speech, Dr. Kebuladze pondered upon the political aspects of translation policies and practices, highlighting that  through the ages, like the infamous Valuevsky circular of 1863, translation has been considered a weapon of ideological war against Ukrainian identity. In times of modern hybrid wars, the matter of translator’s moral responsibility has gained even more importance.
