IATIS Regional Workshop - 'Of Peninsula and Archipelago: The Landscape of Translation in Southeast Asia'

The eighth IATIS Regional Workshop, hosted by the Chalermprakiat Center of Translation and Interpretation at Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, will take place from 31 August to 1 September 2019.

The call for papers is open from now until 1 April 2019


The workshop is based around issues relating to the study of translation in and of the Southeast Asian region, and the contribution this line of enquiry can make to Translation Studies.

The organisers invite abstracts that address the following and other relevant issues of landscape and translation in relation to Southeast Asia:

· How do landscapes affect the concepts and practices of translation? Conversely, how does translation influence the conceptualization of geographical landscape?

· What kinds of linguistic movements are facilitated or blocked by certain geographical landscapes?

· How do landscape metaphors help us describe translation?

· How does landscape contribute to the concept of untranslatability?

· How do the complex relations between geographic boundaries and translation contribute to the making of national or cultural identities?

· What historic links can we see between landscape, translation and the travel of cultures amongst the Southeast Asian countries?

· Have changing notions of distance and proximity influenced the nature and direction of translation in the region?

· How does climate-induced natural disaster impact translation?

· How does eco-critical translation studies relate to the Southeast Asian context?

Abstracts in English, of no more than 300 words, are invited focusing on the conceptual interrelations between translation, landscape and Southeast Asia and should be submitted to Dr. Phrae Chittiphalangsri (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) together with the authors’ CVs by 1st April 2019. The organisers will endeavor to include papers from all Southeast Asian countries to present a well-rounded and substantially comprehensive picture of the region.

The working languages for this workshop are English and Thai. All accepted abstracts will be translated into Thai. Presentations will be delivered in English with Thai simultaneous interpretation. Please note, if your proposal is accepted, you will be asked to submit a draft of your presentation on or before August 17, 2019 in order for interpreters to familiarize themselves with your presentation before the event.
