Linguistic Field(s): Translation; Typology
The theme of this year's congress is Voices around the World. In keeping with
this theme, we recognize that Translation and Interpretation (T&I )plays a
pivotal role in the development of communication between speakers of different
languages around world. Therefore, we have specifically designated one day (23
July 2008) as a forum to bring together leading researchers, educators,
practitioners and students to discuss current issues and research projects in
the field of T&I.
The theme of the congress means that there will be a considerable number of
contributions to T & I studies and that participants in the Congress will come
from all major regions around the world, bringing a rich range of languages to
the discussion, including Chinese, French, Japanese, Korean, Spanish and
English, to name a few.
The program for the full day is as follows:
Keynote sessions & workshops
15 minute keynote sessions followed by 45 minute workshops from leading
academics and practitioners to discuss research projects and current issues.
20 minute sessions for research students to report on their projects and receive
feedback from senior academics, practitioners and colleagues.
30-40 minute parallel papers on current issues and research projects in the
field. Abstracts submission guidelines to follow.
This Year the LINGUIST List hopes to raise $60,000. This money will go to help keep
the List running by supporting all of our Student Editors for the coming year.
