Using Corpora in Contrastive and Translation Studies (7th edition) 10-12th July 2023, Poznań, Poland

Conference theme: Capturing conceptual complexity with updated theories and enriched corpus designs

In the about thirty-year-long tradition of corpus-based translation/interpreting and contrastive studies, the field has gone through many stages ranging from the initial infatuation with corpus linguistics methodology, through getting stuck at its favourite ‘teddy-bear’ operationalizations (De Stutter & Lefer 2020), to the situation in which the methodological development may be even outpacing or displacing theoretical development (Kotze, Halverson, De Sutter 2022, TT2 roundtable description). It is clear that the field today needs to align ‘fundamental conceptual and theoretical reflection’ (Kotze, Halverson, De Sutter 2022, TT2 roundtable description) with empirical designs reaching far beyond the first approaches designed originally to investigate texts and translations carried out in pen and paper era.

In this context, we would like to view the UCCTS 2023 conference as an opportunity for translation/interpreting and contrastive studies scholars to actively engage in discussions on these urgent issues, whose resolution would help the two sister disciplines to move forward.

Deadline for abstract: 30 Jan 2023
