As the International Postgraduate Conference in Translation and Interpreting (IPCITI) inspired the establishment of this journal in 2004, New Voices in Translation Studies is delighted to announce that Issue 20 (May 2019) will be dedicated to “Negotiating Power in Translation and Interpreting: Agency, Representation, Ideology”, the theme of the IPCITI 2018 conference (https://ipciti.org.uk), which will be hosted by the University of Manchester in October 2018. Two members of the IPCITI 2018 Organising Committee, Deborah Giustini and Chonglong Gu, will be joining as Guest Editors for this special issue.
New Voices in Translation Studies also very warmly invites submissions of papers relating to the theme “Negotiating Power in Translation and Interpreting: Agency, Representation, Ideology” from scholars who, for many reasons, may not be able to attend or present at the IPCITI 2018. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
- concepts and theories of power and ideology;
- methods for the description and analysis of power relations;
- policy, expertise, and the professional environment;
- culture, cooperation, and conflict;
- social media and group identity;
- censorship and media control;
- politics and activism.
