The event took place 17-18 May with the support of the magazine “Inostrannaya Literatura” and the Embassy of Spain. This was the 6th conference of the series and its topic was “issues of translation”. As Dr. Bak noted in the opening speech, the general Spanish direction of the conference was timed to coincide with the facts that President Medvedev decreed the year 2011 to be the Year of Spain in Russia.
The participants delivered presentation on various aspects and genres of translation on 17 May. Student presentations were held the next day.
