CfP: Genealogies of Knowledge II - Evolving Transnational, Transdisciplinary and Translational Epistemologies

An international conference hosted by the
Centre for Translation and the Translation Programme,
Hong Kong Baptist University, Hong Kong

In collaboration with the
Genealogies of Knowledge Project, University of Manchester, UK

7-9 April 2020

 

This conference builds on and extends the theme of Genealogies of Knowledge I, which was held in Manchester in December 2017 and focused on the role of translation in the production and circulation of political, scientific and other key concepts in social life across time and space. Hosted by the Centre for Translation, Hong Kong Baptist University, Genealogies of Knowledge II will continue to explore how (re)translation, rewriting and other forms of mediation participate in the production and contestation of knowledge and how they renegotiate and/or transform the meaning of key concepts and values at specific historical junctures. This concluding event of the Genealogies of Knowledge project will further seek to widen the platform for enquiry into processes of knowledge construction and circulation by examining how criteria for the recognition and validation of ideas, sources of knowledge, theories and research methods have shifted across cultural spaces, within and across disciplines, and the contribution of translation to effecting such shifts.
