Working Book Title: Psycholinguistic and Cognitive Inquiries in Translation Studies

Edited by: John W. Schwieter & Aline Ferreira

Deadline for Abstracts: July 1, 2012

Psycholinguistic and cognitive inquiries in translation studies will showcase studies that bring to light new findings or build on existing frameworks in translation and interpreting process studies. In particular, the volume will focus on: psycholinguistic and cognitive intersections (original studies or state-of-the-art pieces); methodological ingenuity (studies adopting innovative data collection methodologies common to studies in psycholinguistics and cognitive science); and bilingualism and development of translation competence (studies that explore the progression of novice to expert translator).

The third symposium for young researchers is aimed at students who are about to begin their research, doctoral students, and students who have recently completed their PhD theses. The objective of the symposium is to provide a scientific forum within which the next generation of researchers can exchange ideas and present the research they are carrying out in the field of Translation, Interpreting, Intercultural Studies and East Asian Studies.

Today, 23 April, is World Book and Copyright Day. This year’s event coincides with the 80th anniversary of Index Translationum, and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) is observing the day under the theme “Books, Translation, Reading and Copyright”. In a message to mark the event, the Director General of UNESCO, Irina Bokova, recalls as follows:

"Translation is the first step towards the rapprochement of peoples, and is also a decentralizing experience, teaching diversity and dialogue. Translation is one of the driving principles of our creative diversity, which enriches each language through contact with all the others."
