The ARTIS International Research School is a new training initiative based on the experience of ARTIS (Advancing Research in Translation and Interpreting Studies, 2014-present) and the former TRSS (Translation Research Summer School, 2001-2013), in collaboration with the Jiao Tong Baker Centre for Translation and Intercultural Studies. The School will primarily address the needs of doctoral and early career researchers in translation and interpreting studies, as well as more experienced academics who are new to the discipline or interested in engaging with recent developments in the field.
The ARTIS International Research School will take place in Jiao Tong University, Shanghai once every two years, starting on 6-11 July 2020 and rotating with the International Research School for Media Translation and Digital Culture.
The ARTIS International Research School aims to contribute to realising one of the priorities articulated by the Advisory Board of the Jiao Tong Baker Centre for Translation and Intercultural Studies, namely, ‘enhancing dialogue between Chinese and international scholars of translation and creating an open, welcoming space for all scholars, but particularly early career scholars, to interact and explore new avenues of research’.

English in a World of Strangers: Rethinking World Anglophone Studies
In an increasingly globalized world characterized by multipolar power structures, trans-cultural flows and interlaced digital pathways, English has long since become a worldly language. A whole universe of discourse predicated on the question of who owns Eng-lish has been thrown into doubt: more than a billion people worldwide ‘do’ English in new and often unexpected ways, and anglophone literatures and cultures all over the world have become veritable contact zones characterized by multilingualism, trans-languaging and syncretic language practices.
Work in progress in anglophone postcolonial studies – including M.A./M.Ed., PhD and Postdoc projects as well as ongoing research projects in general – can be presented in the “Under Construction” section, for which poster presentations are also welcome.
Deadline for panel suggestions along with names of proposed speakers (minimum 3): November 01, 2019
Deadline for individual abstracts: December 31, 2019
