Language Practice in the Context of Africa
SALALS 29(3) - June 2011.

Guest editor: Kobus Marais (University of the Free State, Bloemfontein,
South Africa)

This special edition of SALALS will contain papers read at the first two
Spring Schools for Translation Studies in Africa (held in Bloemfontein in
2009 and Stellenbosch in 2010 respectively). To put the debate in global
context, contributions from other scholars are also invited.

In recent developments in translation studies, context in general and
geographical context in particular has become of interest as part of the
implications of postpositivism in the field. Also, locality has become a
buzz word in a campaign to rid translation studies from its Western bias.
The aim of the edition is to conceptualise the influence of Africa as a
context within which to do language practice. The edition will try to
facilitate a global debate on this matter by providing voice to scholars
from various contexts. Papers on this topic are awaited from contributors
from across the globe. All sub-fields of study within language practice,
i.e. translation studies, interpreting studies, human language technology,
document design, language planning, terminology/lexicography
and others will be considered.

Deadline for abstracts (500 words): 1 September 2010.
Successful authors notified: 1 October 2010
Submission of papers: 15 January 2011
Final notification of acceptance of papers: 31 March 2011
Publication: June 2011

Submit abstracts to jmaraisufs.ac.za
