Meeting Description:

The conference will mark the launch of the International Association
for Translation and Intercultural Studies (IATIS), a global forum
designed to enable scholars from different regional and disciplinary
backgrounds to debate issues relating to translation and other forms
of intercultural communication.

The conference will mark the launch of the International Association
for Translation and Intercultural Studies (IATIS), a global forum
designed to enable scholars from different regional and disciplinary
backgrounds to debate issues relating to translation and other forms
of intercultural communication.

Ongoing internationalization and networking, increasing population
mobility, mass migration and rapidly developing communication
technologies all involve crosscultural representation of one kind or
another. Mediation is provided by translators and interpreters in some
cases. In others, it takes a variety of less explicit forms and hence
remains largely untheorized and under-researched.

Institutions and individual researchers across the world have been
making questions of globalization and multiculturalism part of their
scholarly agenda and setting up programmes to investigate
them. Translation studies is now an established discipline in many
parts of the world. Intercultural studies is emerging as an area of
study in its own right.

To date, however, no single scholarly association represents the
interests of academics and researchers in these rapidly growing fields
across the world. Existing organizations tend to be restricted in
their aims and scope, whether to the professional development of
translators and interpreters, to certain geographical areas, or to the
narrower field of translation. At the same time, issues of translation
and intercultural communication feature only occasionally in the
conferences and publications of scholarly associations in such fields
as anthropology, comparative literature, or pragmatics. Hence the need
for a worldwide, broadly based association encompassing both
translation and intercultural studies.

To mark the launch of the International Association for Translation
and Intercultural Studies (IATIS), Sookmyung Women�Euro(tm)s
University in Seoul, Korea, is hosting an international conference
with an appropriately international and pressing theme: Translation
and the Construction of Identity. �Euro~Translation�Euro(tm)
is used here generically to cover written translation, oral
interpreting, audiovisual translation and translation in ethnography,
among other forms of crosscultural mediation. Contributions covering
forms of intercultural communication other than translation are
invited.

The conference themes include the following:

� The construction and maintenance of national, religious and
ethnic identity

� Power, diplomacy and culture in international relations

� The intellectual effects of globalisation

� Negotiating identities across cultures: migration, gender,
asylum

� Self and Other in crosscultural encounters

� The impact of institutional identities on translation and
crosscultural research

These themes may be approached from a variety of disciplinary
backgrounds, including various strands of linguistics, pragmatics,
literary theory, gender studies, postcolonial studies, sociology,
anthropology, cultural studies, and media studies, among others.

Deadline for submitting abstracts: 30 November 2003
