This year’s Latino Celebration also features the accompanying interactive exhibit, A Feeling Of Itself. LIVES IN TRANSLATION (LiT) in collaboration with the DESIGN CONSORTIUM (DC) present this exhibition that engages the audience through a set of multimedia audio-visual experiences that express the value of living in translation, based on cultural exchange and the concept of what in Spanish we call “arraigo,” which roughly translates to “a sense of belonging because of one’s roots.”
The current selection is a set dedicated to celebrating Latino heritage and language, represented by our Lives in Translation students, Alma Garcia and Jennifer Carpio, who have conducted interviews in Spanish and Tlapanec. For more information, please visit their webpage, A Feeling of Itself: A Lives In Translation Exhibition.
