Online Conference “Translating Linguistic Minorities”, 27-28-29 May
We are happy to announce that registration is now open for our conference on translating linguistic minorities (within and between the francophone and anglophone spheres), which will take place online between May 27 and 29.
TRANSLATING LINGUISTIC MINORITIES
WITHIN AND BETWEEN THE ANGLOPHONE ET FRANCOPHONE SPHERES
28-29 May 2020
Maison de la Recherche, Université Sorbonne Nouvelle - Paris 3
The continuing emergence of minority voices in public and academic discourses (minority and regional languages, accents, dialects and sociolects, youth or queer language, languages of immigration or of previously colonised countries, or of diaspora communicites, etc.) has begun to redefine the boundaries between languages and question the translator's agency.
This two-day conference will include a number of thematic panels, workshops, and roundtables which seek to shed light on the representation of linguistic minorities in francophone and anglophone contexts through the prism of translation.
These investigations will study the way in which linguistic minorities are presented in literary and audiovisual texts, as well as in the media, reflecting on issues including the ethical positioning of the author and the translator, the tension between the authenticity and the accessibility of the voice of the Other in translation, as well as between orality and the written word, the influence of external parties on the translating process, the relationship between the text and the paratext, the role of the media in shaping the reputation of minority groups, etc.
