|Meeting Description:||The English & Translation Society at Sultan Qaboos University, Oman, is hosting the 11th Annual Translation Symposium 'Translation in Media' on 6-9 April 2014.
Organized by students, the event will seek to provide a platform for participants to discuss diverse theoretical and practical issues related to the role of translation in media and, specifically, news production. Translation practices, strategies, norms and ethics in the field of news, and more applied analyses of narratives in specific contexts (e.g. the press, television, advertising, cinema, and the internet) will also be examined. As media/news translation is a broadly uncharted territory, at least, in the GCC region, the forum will consider the importance of translation in the circulation of news and narratives in this strategically vital region.
Invited Keynote Speakers:
Dr. Prof. Christina Schaeffner, Aston University, UK
Dr. Prof. Myriam Salama-Carr, University of Salford, UK
Dr. Christopher Rundle, University of Bologna, Italy
