This panel welcomes proposals connected to any of the following or compatible issues, with a particular focus on the role of translation (in its narrow and broad senses)
§ The interplay between insurrectional and mainstream epistemologies, in relation to concepts such as expertise, progress, efficiency and experimentation
§ Insurrectional initiatives to reconfigure professions, disciplines, theories and research methodologies
§ Histories and geographies of resistance: the time and space of translation
§ Transnational diffusion, the uncertainties of cultural appropriation, and the risks of co-optation and instrumentalization
§ Insurrectional epistemologies and the porous frontier between grassroots and mainstream
§ Social and digital spaces: the tension between concrete and virtual space/time and its impact on emerging epistemologies
§ Activist communities in virtual space: what kind of insurrectional epistemologies emerge through transient, biodegradable networks?
§ Prefigurative translation: modes, critiques and alternative strategies
Julie Boéri lectures at the Translation and Interpreting Studies Department of Hamad Bin Khalifa University, Doha, Qatar. Her work focuses on social change and innovation in digital and non-digital environments, with a particular interest in narrative convergence and divergence among actors and communities. Her ethnographic studies of interactions, practices and artefacts in social organizations and media spaces seek to account for the dynamics of dominance and resistance at play in cross-cultural and cross-linguistic communicative encounters.
Submissions of paper proposals should be sent to the panel convenor (Julie Boéri, jboeriAThbku.edu.qa) by 30 September 2019.
Submissions should consist of:
§ Abstract (350-400 words, including up to 5 bibliographic references).
§ Contributor’s 150-word (maximum) biodata written in the third person.
§ Full affiliation(s).
Notification of acceptance will be sent by 30 October 2019.
