We are now inviting oral communications and posters. See the Key Deadlines page for details on dates.

Submitting a Poster

Submitting an Oral Communication within a thematic panel

Oral communications, submitted in response to one of our thematic panels will run for 20 minutes followed by 10-minute discussions.

Panels serve as the cornerstone for structuring the conference program. Panels are thematic, integrated discussions among 6 to 12 session participants on a clearly identified theme or topic within the larger theme of the conference (The cultural Ecology of Translation). They should provide attendees with an opportunity to hear presenters engage in dialogue amongst themselves as well as with attendees about cutting-edge research, practice, theory building, or policy development. 

Some oral communications originally submitted to a panel may be moved to the general theme of the conference by recommendation of the convenor and/or the Scientific Committee.

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

- An introductory statement that outlines the background and significance of the study
- A short description of the basic methodology adopted
- A clear indication of the major findings of the study
- A concluding statement
- Thematic area chosen from the list of suggested topics
- Five keywords

The deadline for proposals is October 25, 2018

Papers accepted will be allocated 30 minutes in the program, which includes no more than 20 minutes for presentation and 10 minutes for questions/discussion.
