Remapping "Habitus" in Translation Studies - International Research Symposium

On 27 and 28 April 2012, the Department of Translation Studies, University of Graz, Austria, will host an international research symposium on the theme "Remapping 'Habitus' in Translation Studies".

Invited speakers: Abdallah, Kristiina (University of Vaasa, Finland)Gouanvic, Jean-Marc (Université Concordia, Montréal, Canada); Grbić, Nadja (Department of Translation Studies, University of Graz); Hanna, Sameh F. (The University of Salford, UK); Hernández, Tania Paola (University of Manchester, UK); Kaindl Klaus (University of Vienna, Austria); Meylaerts, Reine (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium); Pasmatzi, Kalliopi (University of Manchester, UK); Sela-Sheffy, Rakefet (Tel Aviv University, Israel); Tahir Gürҫağlar, Şehnaz (Boğaziçi University, Istanbul, Turkey); Torikai, Kumiko (Rikkyo University, Tokyo, Japan); Vorderobermeier, Gisella M. (University of Graz, Austria); Yannakopoulou, Vasso (National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece).

The international research symposium aims to reassess the role and application of the habitus concept in translation studies. It will attempt to reshape the conceptual framework of the habitus concept by integrating both critical perspectives and interdisciplinary insights.

The symposium addresses, on the one hand, established researchers whose recent work has focused primarily, or to a significant extent, on a Bourdieusian / Latourian / Lahirian sociology of translation. At the same time, it will be open to a select group of younger researchers who are starting to engage with this set of issues in their work.

It is a follow-up event to the international conference on the sociology of translation held in Graz 2005, organized by Michaela Wolf. The papers and discussions will be published by a renowned academic publisher or will appear as a special issue of an international translation studies journal.
