2nd Call for Papers
(Deadline for abstract submission extended to 15 December 2020)
The Second HKBU International Conference on Interpreting will now be held in mixed modes on 8-9 April 2021. It will take place on the campus of Hong Kong Baptist University and online via Zoom Webinar.
Following on the great success of the conference on “History of Interpreting” in 2017, we will dedicate this second conference to the theme of “Cognitive Approaches” in interpreting.
This broad theme will allow us to take stock of the multifaceted research conducted from this perspective, present the state of the art, and pave the way for future research adopting cognitive approaches.
We also recognize the increasing convergence of research on both spoken language interpreting and signed language interpreting and will attempt to connect the two fields under the common theme of this conference. As keynote speakers for this year’s conference, we will have two of the most highly regarded scholars who study spoken language interpreting and signed language interpreting taking cognitive approaches.
We welcome oral presentations and posters on both basic and applied research that fit the sub-themes of the conference or that are related to the conference theme in a broader sense.
- bimodal and unimodal bilingualism and their implications in interpreting studies
- modality (bimodal or unimodal) effects in interpreting
- cognitive processes and constructs in different modalities and modes of interpreting
- neurological substrates of interpreting
- attention and memory in interpreting
- cognitive workload in different modes of interpreting
- cognitive considerations in machine-aided interpreting
- cognitive abilities as interpreting aptitude
- cognition-informed training of interpreters
- skill acquisition and attrition in interpreters
- interpreter’s cognition throughout the life span
