 The seminar by Marta Dziurosz at which she spoke about her translation residence at the London Free Word Centre gathered a large audience and inspired a vivid discussion. Marta graduated from our “British and American culture and literature” program in 2006 followed by the UNESCO literary translation studies course. The first part of her lecture was devoted to the Free Word Centre itself, which is a charity organization working at the intersection of culture and politics and creating space for the collaboration of publishers, writers, translators, academics, NGOs workers, activists, artists, and journalists. Its focus on the freedom of speech is realized through numerous programs and projects, including the Power of Translation program that Marta was talking about, mentioning such initiatives as projects directed at teachers and their multilingual students (migrants and refugees) using the creative potential of translation and multilingualism, anti-censorship campaigns, and supporting literacy among the underprivileged.

On November 9, 2016, Department of American and Canadian Studies organized a guest lecture of Douglas Christie, professor of theological studies from Marymount University, Los Angeles, and Ralph Black, poet and co-director of the Brockport Writers Forum at the State University of New York. The lecturers talked about (micro)racism in contemporary American society as depicted in the award-winning poetic meditation by Claudia Rankine entitled Citizen: An American Lyric (2014). During the talk students spontaneously shared observations on the existence of racist prejudices in their own environments. The lively discussion that followed seems to testify to the importance and universality of the topic.
