We kindly invite interested scholars and practitioners to submit paper proposals for a conference session track the theme of Digitalization as a Transformational Force for Transcultural Communication. The session forms part of the conference Critical Issues in Science, Technology and Society Studies, to be held from 3-5 May 2021 in Graz.
This digital session will bring together scholars and practitioners from the fields of Translation and Interpreting Studies as well as researchers working with theories, methods and heuristics from Science, Technology and Society Studies.
The session will be organised alongside three different but interconnected formats: We will begin with some classical presentations (20 minutes per presentation), followed by two brief ‘polemical’ positioning papers (10 minutes per paper), and the session will be concluded by a panel discussion.
We welcome abstracts either for 20-minute-presentations, or for 10-minute-positioning papers. The concluding panel discussion among the participants will further encourage interdisciplinary debate on the session topic, leading to a possible joint publication.
Abstracts (max. 300 words) should include name and affiliation, presentation format, title and five keywords. Please send your abstract as a Word document by February 22nd 2021 to the following three email addresses simultaneously:

We look forward to your abstracts and to an inspirational session!
