    Date: April 27 – 28, 2017 –  27 – 28 avril 2017

     SUMMARY – AU SUJET DU COLLOQUE

    Gendered genres represent a significant challenge for students of translation, translators in practice and translation analysts. At issue is the distinction between sex and gender, one being a biological fact and the other being a social construct.

    Les genres genrés constituent une véritable gageure pour les étudiants en traduction, comme d’ailleurs pour les traducteurs en exercice et les traducteurs-analystes.

Antisemitism worldwide in 2016

TAU’s Kantor Center has published its report on antisemitism for 2016

In honor of Yom haShoah, Israel’s Holocaust Remembrance Day, Tel Aviv University’s Kantor Center for the Study of Contemporary European Jewry has released its Annual Report on Antisemitism Worldwide for 2016. 

According to the report  there’s “a continuing downward trend in violent events versus an increase of antisemitic verbal and visual expressions, especially on social media.” These findings, along with a wave of refugees and the growing rise of extreme right-wing political entities, have been a cause for great concern among Jewish communities.
