How and why do we translate other languages? How do we translate what we see when we travel to other countries? "Translation and Travel" will build a model for experiencing the foreign and for understanding the nature of culture.

Fred Miller Robinson received his PhD from the University of Washington and is a professor of English. He served as chair of the English department from 1991 until 2005 and has taught a variety of undergraduate courses including Modern Poetry, Modern Drama, Writing Autobiography, as well as a text course in modern drama to Globe/USD MFA students. His research focus has shifted from comic theory to cultural studies. Professor Robinson has written three books: The Comedy of Language: Studies in Modern Comic Literature; Comic Moments; and The Man in the Bowler Hat: His History and Iconography (a social history of modern life). In 2002, he received the Davies Award for Teaching Excellence.
