- the interaction of participants in communicative events with dialogue interpreters;
- the interaction of translators with other members of a translation team;
- the interaction of people with translated products,including AV products;
- the interaction of translators, posteditors, revisers and interpreters with technological tools;
- human-computer interaction (e.g., interface design).
Please send abstracts through the conference organization.
In the 15th and 16th centuries, the linguistic situation in Europe was one of remarkable fluidity. Latin, the great scholarly lingua franca of the medieval period, was beginning to crack as the tectonic plates shifted beneath it, but the vernaculars had not yet crystallized into the national languages that they would become a century later, and bi- or multilingualism was still rife.
This interdisciplinary conference welcomes proposals for 15-20 minute papers on translation and other language-related topics dealing with the period 1400 to 1800. Thematic panel proposals are also welcome (2-hour sessions involving 3-4 speakers).
Verbal and visual paratexts in translation and interpreting studies
A one-day ARTIS workshop
Wednesday 12 September 2018
University of Nottingham, UK
CALL FOR PAPERS
Deadline for receipt of abstracts: 12 June 2018
Broadly understood as the thresholds through which readers and viewers access texts, paratexts have been shown to play a crucial role in the reception and interpretation of texts. While Gérard Genette’s original theorisation of paratexts took place in the context of literary print culture, in recent years the concept has been fruitfully applied to digital contexts and other kinds of texts, notably film, television and video games. The types of paratexts studied in these contexts are many and varied; examples include trailers, game strategy guides, e-reading devices, discussion forums, spoilers and fan-vids. In translation studies, research has tended to focus on the paratexts of printed translation products, such as book covers, translators’ prefaces and translators’ footnotes, but there is considerable scope for applying the concept to research in digital and audiovisual translation studies. The notion of the paratext is also potentially relevant to research into interpreting, where it might be used to investigate prosodic variation, body language, or other framing devices.
