POSTCOLONIAL TRANSLATION STUDIES AND BEYOND: RESEARCHING TRANSLATION

FOURTH IATIS REGIONAL WORKSHOP: 23-24 AUGUST 2014

UNIVERSITY OF ZAMBIA

Despite the fact that Africa is home to at least 1300 languages, that most if not all African countries are linguistically diverse and that translation should thus be an everyday phenomenon, the field of translation studies in Africa is small, relative to other continents. At tertiary level, most of the energy is put into training translators/interpreters, and relatively little is done at the level of research into processes and products of translation. When one pages through discipline-related encyclopedias, bibliographies and readers, this trend becomes increasingly evident.

Guidelines for Panel Proposal Submission

 

Your panel proposal should include:

  • the panel title
  • name, address, and email for (each of) the convenor(s)
  • a rationale or justification for the panel (<1 page)
  • a list of potential speakers and their anticipated topics

Submission of panel proposals should be made by 15th April 2014. Proposals must be sent to the Conference Organising Committee through the online START System only. Proposals sent to other IATIS channels will not be assessed.

Upon submitting their proposals, panel convenors should bear in mind that, if accepted, each panel must include at least 6 and at most 12 speakers. Panels will be organized in two, three or four sessions lasting 90 minutes. Each session will have three speakers with a 30-minute slot each. Proposals listing more than 12 or fewer than 6 speakers will not be considered. Respecting the minimum and the maximum number of participants, and if they wish, convenor(s) may use the first 15 minutes to introduce the panel and/or the last 15 minutes for a wrap-up.

IATIS strongly encourages multilingualism and will strive to create the necessary environment for successful multilingual interactions. The conference working languages are Portuguese, English and Spanish. However, to assure consistency in the peer-review assessment process, abstracts and proposals must be submitted in English only.

Evaluation Process and Criteria

All panel proposals will be peer-reviewed and ranked by the Conference Advisory Board. On a first round, the members of the Conference Advisory Board will review submissions for panel proposals. Applicants will be informed regarding acceptance by 20th May 2014.

Panel proposals will be assessed using the following criteria. Weighting of particular criteria may vary depending on the nature of proposals, but proposals should explicitly address these criteria, as appropriate.

Scientific strength: Panels are the scientific centrepieces of the conference, and should:

  • be explicitly linked to the theme of the conference;
  • offer significant contributions to the development of the discipline and point to future research agendas; and
  • present innovative and/or interdisciplinary approaches, including novel collaborations or syntheses across subdisciplines or with other related disciplines.

Structure and organization: Panels should be structured to:

  • provide an overall synthesis or overview; they should not be simply a set of related case studies; and
  • build a well-integrated whole; each talk should have clear relevance to the overall synthesis provided by convenors.

Integration: Proposals must beclearly linked to the conference’s overall theme. In case of equal scientific value, the advisory board may favour proposals that offer a particular value to the overall programme in view of what other proposals cover.

Timeline

  • By 15th May 2014: Notification of acceptance of panel proposals to panel convenors
  • By 20th May 2014: Announcement of approved panels on the conference website and opening of the call for abstracts for panel sessions
  • 1st August 2014: Deadline for abstract submission by potential contributors to a panel

Abstracts for oral presentations within panels will have to comply with the Oral Communications Guidelines. It is the responsibility of convenor(s) to assess the abstracts and, respecting the minimum and maximum established numbers, accept only those abstracts that meet the quality criteria described above. If they wish, panel convenor(s) may request help from external associates for the assessment of panel contributions. Nevertheless, as submissions will only be handled through the START Conference Management System, it is the convenor(s) final responsibility to make sure that all contributions are available on the START platform for a final assessment by the Conference Advisory Board.

By 15th September 2014: submission by panel convenor(s) of a final description of the respective panel, together with the selected abstracts and the names of the accepted speakers.

The complete panel will be assessed by the Conference Advisory Board to ensure that they meet the quality standards described above and that the minimum and maximum number of participants fall within what has been specified in the guidelines.

By 20th of October 2014: The Conference Advisory Board will notify panel convenor(s) of the full acceptance of a panel. If necessary, the Conference Advisory Board may request necessary adjustments before making a final announcement of the conference website.

By 25th of October 2014: Notification of acceptance to speakers having submitted an abstract to panels. Individual contributions not selected to thematic panels can still be submitted to the general conference, only by recommendation of the Conference Advisory Board, between 30th of October and 10th November 2014.
