Meeting Description:

'From Reflection to Refraction: New Perspectives, New Settings and New Impacts in Translation and Interpreting Studies'

The IPCITI series, organised collaboratively between the University of Edinburgh, Dublin City University, Heriot-Watt University and the University of Manchester, is intended to give young researchers an opportunity to share their research in a supportive environment among peers and to participate in a significant international networking event for postgraduates in Translating & Interpreting studies.

This conference aspires to address some of the issues raised in the previous conference, and will particularly focus on new perspectives within the discipline, the application of such research in new settings, and the impact of these new developments.

The move away from the view of Translation, in its broadest sense, as mere linguistic transference to a more complex and multifaceted activity has introduced a myriad of research avenues within T & I studies. This blurring of disciplinary boundaries has not only precipitated shifts in academia but in translational practice as well. This conference therefore aims to provide a forum for discussing new perspectives in research, with special emphasis on those that adopt new approaches, investigate new settings and have potential socio-political, ideological and commercial impact.

Keynote Speakers:

Workshop, 29th October
Prof. Mona Baker (University of Manchester)

Conference 30th - 31st October
Prof. Raffaela Merlini (University of Macerata)
Dr. Kate Sturge (Aston University)
