The two-week institute was funded by the Consortium of Humanities Centers and Institutes and the Mellon Foundation, and UCI’s participation was also supported by UCI Humanities Commons. Ngugi wa Thiong’o held a key note address, “The Power of Translation. Bridging the Gulf between Cultures.” It was a fascinating event with additional participation by students and faculty from the University of Chile, Oxford University (UK), and the Western Cape University (South Africa).
