For this meeting we will have a double event. From 11am to 12:30pm, Alba Sort, marketing lecturer/facilitator and Chartered Linguist, will run a workshop entitled 'Social Media for Linguists'.
There will then be a break for lunch (optional at own expense) and at 2:00pm Dr Anne Stokes, lecturer in German and translation at the University of Stirling, will give a
presentation on dealing with translation in occupied Germany, 1945–1949. When embarking on the occupation of Germany in 1945, all four occupying powers viewed books, and in particular translations of works of fiction and non-fiction into German, as vital for turning Germans away from the values of National Socialism and towards those of democracy, as variously understood by the occupiers. This introductory talk will address the occupiers' translation policies and the selection of key texts and translators. It will also consider how selected texts and their translations fit with the re-education agenda.
