Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

Meeting Description: Rethinking Perspectives in Translation Research and Practice
Korean Association of Translation Studies (KATS) International Conference
October 18-19, 2013

The expansion of the discipline of translation studies in recent years has been accompanied by an increase in calls for an awareness of ideas and practices of translation occurring in different cultural settings. Having developed mainly on the basis of European languages and cultures, as well as Western philosophical and literary theories, translation studies has evolved as and, to a large extent, still remains a strongly Eurocentric discipline in its orientation. Although there are welcome signs of a steadily growing interest in translation/interpreting practices and concepts from diverse cultural and social contexts, the current state of representation and discussion of translation merits further investigation and exploration.
