Translating Language and Transferring Knowledge

Translating Language and Transferring Knowledge

What can be learned from anthropologists studying other anthropologists? Danu Yang is a second year master’s student and anthropologist in the Applied Anthropology Graduate Program. Her main subject of study is a collaborative project dedicated to translating anthropological research between Chinese and Portuguese. Danlu is conducting an ethnographic study of the people involved in this translation project. She is herself highly multilingual, speaking Chinese, English, Portuguese, and Spanish.  Danlu is also interested in what motivates anthropologists to study rural China and what is gained when local knowledge is able to be expressed without English as an intermediary. Hosted by Selene Ross and Joseph Valencia.
