Please note that this conference was originally due to take place 27-28 Nov. 2020 but had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
APTIS (the Association of Programmes in Translation and Interpreting Studies, UK and Ireland) has entered the third year since its formation. After two successful conferences held in the UK (at Aston University in 2018 and Newcastle University in 2019), the conference series is coming to Ireland. Dublin City University will be proud to host the 3rd Annual Conference on 19-20 November 2021.
APTIS encourages research into all aspects of translation and interpreting and aims to improve the teaching and learning of these subjects at UK and Irish HE institutions. Previous conferences examined challenges and opportunities involved in the teaching and learning of translation and interpreting and looked to make connections between academic and non-academic settings for such efforts. The conference in Dublin will look to the future and ask scholars, practitioners, and other stakeholders on these islands to come together to discuss evolving profiles of translation and interpreting training.
We invite proposals for papers, panels, and workshops that engage largely but not exclusively with what is yet to come in the world of translation and interpreting (T&I) training. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
- T&I and technology now and in the future
- T&I and AI now and in the future
- Developments in AVT training
- Developments in localisation training
- The future of accessibility in T&I programmes
- T&I as a profession and as an academic discipline: latest advances/state of the art/future prospects
- Building a skills base in T&I (project management, content creation, programming)
- The importance of history to T&I training now and in the future
- T&I and the EU in the context of Brexit and the lifting of the Irish language derogation
- Translation and interpreting in the context of language learning
- Ergonomic issues in T&I training
Deadline for submissions: 22 April 2021
