We seek to appoint a Lecturer A in Spanish to consolidate our teaching of Spanish as part of our Modern Languages programme, to take part in our research environment in relevant areas across the school and to add to our research productivity, and to develop and contribute to our impact and public engagement activities. A particular interest in Peninsular Spanish (sociolinguistics, translation, or culture and society) would be an advantage.

The successful candidate will join a dynamic and innovative subject team, with strong teaching and research specialisms in related areas such as sociolinguistics, translation and interpreting studies, transnationalism, comparative literature and mobility. They will be able to teach primarily in Spanish at all levels on the undergraduate programmes, contributing to the team delivery of programmes focused on advanced language proficiency, intercultural skills as well as employability. They will be enthusiastic about pastoral care and keen to support students during their year abroad, including by undertaking placement visits abroad when required.

Hermeneutics, Specialized Communication, and Translation

The convergence of translation studies and research oriented towards specialized communication
on the one hand and, on the other, translation studies and hermeneutics more broadly has been
observable for several years. This issue of the Yearbook of Translational Hermeneutics aims to
bring together research and theory-building at these interfaces from an intercultural and transcultural perspective.
The scholarly investigation of translation in the sense of transcultural specialized communication (i.e. specialized translation and interpreting) encompasses theoretical and empirical approaches drawn from such diverse disciplines as translation studies, linguistics (text linguistics,
language for special purposes, legal linguistics, business linguistics, etc.), communication studies,
cultural studies, and the respective areas of study they imply (law, economics, technology, medicine, etc.). Translational hermeneutics, in turn, is fed by a variety of approaches ranging from
understanding in terms of the art and craft of interpretation which is performed by the translating
individual, through to approaches to translation and translation research informed by literary studies, cognitive science, and sociology (including the sociology of understanding), and also philosophically oriented approaches, especially those framed by phenomenological and philosophical
hermeneutics. It can therefore be assumed that a more in-depth study of hermeneutics, specialized
communication, and translation, has the potential to embrace a variety of scholarly approaches and
can moreover accommodate a wide range of topics and questions.
Possible topics for conceptual and empirical contributions to this issue of the Yearbook of
Translational Hermeneutics include:
• The (textual) horizons of transcultural specialized communication in history and at the present day
• Hermeneutics and rhetoric in transcultural specialized communication
• Professional action as hermeneutic action (e.g. legal hermeneutics, comparative law, legal
translation; professional ethics)
• Specialized interpreting and hermeneutics (interpreting in the courtroom, interpreting for
the police, interpreting in asylum proceedings, etc.; interpreting at specialized conferences;
processes of understanding, orality in specialized communication, rhetoric in interpreting,
• Methodological approaches to transcultural specialized communication framed in terms of
translational hermeneutics
• The anthropological dimension of transcultural specialized communication in translation
practice, translation studies and translation didactics
      o Humanism and hermeneutic thinking and acting versus posthumanism and
transhumanism in translation and specialized communication 
      o Interpretive approaches of hermeneutics and philosophy in terms of human-machine interaction in translation and specialized communication
      o Hermeneutics and translation technologies in translation and specialized communication
• The translationally acting (socio-cognitive) subject in its interaction in specialized contexts
(translation processes, actors, agency, collaborative translation in transcultural specialized
• Transcultural specialized communication, hermeneutics and cognition
• Transcultural specialized communication, hermeneutics and creativity
• Transcultural specialized communication, hermeneutics and performativity

It is our pleasure to launch the call for papers for the Third International Conference on Community Translation (ICCT 3), to be held in July 2023 at the Institute of Applied Linguistics, University of Warsaw, Poland. The conference is an initiative of the International Community Translation Research Group, and was preceded by the successful First International Conference on Community Translation, held at Western Sydney University in September 2014, and Second International Conference on Community Translation that took place at RMIT in Melbourne.


The third edition of the conference aims at discussing issues related to the most recent events and changes in the condition, status and application of community translation in different fields, including legal settings, healthcare and migration. We plan to identify those areas of research and practice that need further development, especially in the light of recent humanitarian crises.

Indeed, these events highlighted the role and importance of good quality community translation, as well as the growing need to set standards and provide for quality assurance measures for community translation worldwide. We hope to reflect on such topics as well during ICCT 3.


This edition of the conference is also aimed at bridging the gap between community translation and other disciplines, as well as promoting community translation in those locations where its status is under-recognised.

Young Linguists’ Meeting in Poznań (YLMP) is a congress organized by and for young linguists who appreciate the significance of interdisciplinary research and therefore want to go beyond the traditional branches of linguistics. We believe that the connection between linguistics and other fields of study, such as psychology or sociology, is both crucial and pervasive. Our goal is to present the advantages of an integrated approach and emphasize its importance for contemporary linguistic research.

The leitmotif of the upcoming conference is:

“Language and communication in the times of crisis”.

We encourage graduate and post-graduate students, as well as PhD holders up to seven years after their thesis defense, to submit papers to the conference. All other researchers are more than welcome to attend the event without a paper of their own and contribute to the discussions. Each oral presentation will be assigned 20 minutes and an additional 10 minutes for questions to the presenter.

Deadline for abstracts: 6 January 2023

As one of the oldest and most widely practised forms of reflection on vernacular literatures, Shakespeare criticism has helped shape modern literary scholarship worldwide. The mutual influence between Shakespeare critics of different nations is well known and has in some cases been extensively studied and debated (see e.g. the controversy that has long surrounded Coleridge’s debt to Schlegel). Going beyond questions of influence, this conference aims to refocus the debate on the actual channels of transmission through which Shakespeare criticism has been circulated and received across linguistic and national boundaries, and on the various new audiences that it reached through that circulation.  

Possible topics include:

  • Translations (faithful or not, authorized or not, with or without paratextual framing…), translators and publishers of Shakespeare criticism in different languages.
  • The extracting, anthologizing and international canonization of critical pronouncements on Shakespeare.
  • Reprints of Shakespeare criticism in different parts of the Anglophone world / other large linguistic areas.
  • Lectures and lecture tours on Shakespeare (Schlegel, Coleridge, Dowden, Bradley, the British Academy Shakespeare lectures, …).
  • New media (from 18th- and 19th-century periodicals to 21st-century digital platforms) and their impact on the dissemination/vulgarization of Shakespeare criticism.
  • Audiences and the language(s) of Shakespeare criticism.     
  • The rise of English as an international academic discipline and its impact on the production of Shakespeare criticism in other vernaculars.

The theme of the conference is Corpus Linguistics in the Digital Era: Genres, Registers and Domains. Most studies based on or derived from corpora, implicitly or explicitly, deal with the notion of genre, and other concepts such as those of register and domain. In Corpus Linguistics, the importance of these concepts has been repeatedly highlighted in studies by Douglas Biber and other linguists working in the field of Corpus Linguistics. This is the reason why the theme selected for the conference is Corpus Linguistics in the digital era, with especial reference to the analysis of genres, registers and domains. The conference will also cater for other themes such as the analysis of genres, registers and domains in Applied Linguistics and statistical analyses. These themes will be dealt with in different round tables taken place during the academic event.

Deadline for submissions: 31 December 2022
