Pragmatics of Translation: Symposium on (Im)Politeness and iMean, 24-26 June 2021, University of Basel

In 2021 the 13th meeting of the international Symposium on (Im)Politeness and the 7th meeting of the biannual iMean  (interaction and meaning)  conference will be merged for a meeting on the “pragmatics of translation” on 24-26 June, 2021. We hope that you will hold the dates and be able to join us.

We will invite papers on translation outcomes and processes which highlight a pragmatic angle of understanding the transfer of language phenomena across cultures and intra-culturally. We approach translation from a broad perspective, including written textual translation from source to target language as well as other modalities such as signing, simultaneous translation or audiovisual translation by professional and lay people. We also include topics such as explaining meaning to each other or translating sensual experience into language.

We hope that many people will address both (im)politeness/delicacy as well as translation issues within an interactional/pragmatics frame. However, in the tradition of both the symposium of politeness and i-mean, we also welcome papers on (im)politeness and interactional meaning more generally.

Deadline for abstracts: 1 October 2020
