This is to inform that we will be holding an international conference on East Asian Translation Studies at University of East Anglia, UK, on 19 and 20 June 2014.
Lihua Jiang is one of two scholars to be awarded a bursary to attend the 4th IATIS Conference. Below, she shares her thoughts on the conference.
I was really lucky enough to have been awarded the 2012 IATIS conference bursary right before 2011 Christmas. I am thankful for the Bursary Selection Committee members who have taken all the efforts to read through piles of our applications carefully. My thanks also go to Mark, Rachael and all the Organising Committee members who have helped me with the flight, accommodation booking and local arrangements. I would also like to thank Dr. Dorothy Kenny and Professor David Johnston for your kind introduction and positive feedback to my conference presentation...
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.
