First Call for Papers for Postgraduate Conference:
Theory and Practice: New Convergences
Translation and Interpreting Studies at Queen’s University Belfast announces a postgraduate conference to be held in Belfast on 31 October and 1 November 2013.
The conference will include workshops on specific translation practices, round tables, group and flash presentations, poster presentations and panel sessions.
The organising committee therefore invites proposals for one-hour workshops, one-hour round
tables/group presentations, ten-minute flash presentations, poster presentations and twenty-minute papers.
The language of the conference will be English. Proposals for papers to be delivered in British or Irish. Sign Language will be welcomed, and the conference organisers will provide interpreters wherever possible.
We anticipate that the conference will address all or some of the following themes:
-Creativity and its constraints
-Practice:Contingency and Specificity
-The future of TranslationStudies
-Translationand the Digital Humanities
This list is merely indicative and we will be pleased to receive proposals on other related topics.
The conference itself will be free (to include tea/coffee, lunches and receptions) although participants are expected to make their own arrangements for travel and accommodation.
Professor Susan Bassnett (Translation Studies, University of Warwick) and Dr Paul Spence
(Departmentof the Digital Humanities, King’s College, London) will be plenary speakers.
Selected contributions will be published.
