CULTUS 10 : Multilingualism, Lingua Franca or What? (2nd call)

 

Call for Abstracts: 20 December, 2016          Call for papers: 1 April, 2017

Cultus 10 will begin with a conversation with renowned linguist, comparative literature and translation theorist Professor Susan Bassnett.

This brings politics and power into the question, as well as the short and long term costs of the choices made. 

We welcome papers that address issues related to the following themes with a focus on translation:

- Multilingualism power and empowerment

- Politics and power in language

- Use of a lingua franca in professional encounters

- Professional practice, discourse and the new media
