Call For Papers

Translation, by nature, deals with margins. Translators and interpreters still hold a marginal position in society, as they often work in the shadow, and go unseen, despite the fact that global economy and politics hinge on their work. Translation Studies (TS) holds a similar position in the Humanities and the Social Sciences. This has multifold consequences on professional recognition, leads to further marginalization of vulnerable minorities or invisible end-users, publics and audiences, and has an impact on the advancement of knowledge in and beyond translation.

As a discipline, Translation Studies challenges and transcends disciplinary frontiers, as it converges with and diverges from sister disciplines of the Humanities and Social Sciences, while mapping new territories in dialogue with other domains. Translation Studies not only crosses over in terms of the subject matters of the materials (verbal, auditory, visual, or otherwise) it works with, but also imports, appropriates and expands on knowledge and methods from other disciplines. In so doing, Translation Studies contributes to advancing new knowledge in interrelated domains of enquiry.

One of the remits of higher education, and of science in general, is to expand the borders of knowledge and that can only be achieved if researchers, teachers, students, professionals and all those involved in reflective practices look beyond the margins of what is presently known. Looking beyond the margins may mean to tackle topics that have never been addressed, or to address mainstream topics from a new angle. It may also mean taking the viewpoint of other disciplines or simply running the risk when applying innovative or crosscutting approaches to practices and/or research.

Translation Studies is known to challenge established thought, and to be looking beyond as a discipline that, like its own topic of interest, brings together disciplines, methods, research and practice.

Thematic areas include, but are not limited to, the following

New territories, new landscapes in Translation Studies and practicesCross-overs in interpreting, audiovisual translation, transcreation, self-translationConvergence and divergence between translation, adaptation and mediationInnovation and transgression in researching translation and related areasInterdisciplinarity, Transdisciplinarity and Multidisciplinarity in Translation StudiesTS contribution to advance knowledge in and beyond its own domain of enquiry (methodologies, epistemologies, theories)Old languages, new territories, old continents, new challengesTranslation beyond the wordBeyond censorship and tabooNew readerships and audiencesCultural, linguistic and social minoritiesTranslator training beyond the classroomNew professional profiles, challenges and recognitionTranslation norms and transgressionsMainstream topics in a different lightTechnological innovations in research and practiceCollaborative translation, Crowdsourcing and Fan-based translationTranslation for active citizenship
