Senior Lecturer in Translation Studies, Co-Director of the Centre for Translation and Intercultural Studies, University of Manchester
Job Opening: Full Professor in Translation Studies
Department of Translation Studies, University of Graz, Austria
The Department of Translation Studies at the University of Graz, Austria, invites applications for the position of full professor in Translation Studies.
Knowledge is circulated through translation, more particularly through the importation of scientific and technical discourses for purposes more diverse than we usually realize. Many of these discourses serve practical purposes, of course, but all are more or less related to patterns of thought based on world views and philosophical stances that at times stand in opposition. The 26th conference of the Canadian Association for Translation Studies (CATS) will concentrate on the role played by translation in the journey of scientific and technical knowledge through language-cultures.
The idea that translation acts as a mere mechanical channel transmitting knowledge reduces translation to a naive commonplace that prevents us from grasping its various dimensions and analyzing its practice critically. Translation, as it mediates between language-cultures, pre-supposes human intervention and thus sociohistorical circumstances.
