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.

Call for Papers

We particularly welcome abstracts that address the following topics:

New Approaches:
a. Interdisciplinary research frameworks (e.g. sociology, social anthropology,
post-colonial theory, psychology)
b. Methodological approaches (e.g. ethnographic, cognitive analysis, audio
description, use of multimodal corpora)

New Settings:
a. Genres (e.g. video games, comics, etc.)
b. Fields, institutional environments (e.g. the museum, religious settings, etc.)
c. Markets (e.g. new or unusual language combinations)
d. Interpreting settings (e.g. educational, mental healthcare, refugee hearings,
asylum interviews)
e. Crowdsourcing (e.g. multi-authored novels, dubbing, fansubbing,
non-professional translation and interpreting, internet websites)
f. Hybrid settings (e.g. multilingual societies, Creole settings)

New Impacts:
a. Emerging activist networks
b. Ideological permeation
c. Redistributed power relations (e.g. the role of the translator as advocate of
the asylum seeker)
d. Localizing and foreignizing translations and their impact
e. Language power relations
f. Raising awareness in areas where translation carries a social function (e.g.
medical, educational settings, news reporting, etc.), T&I research
dissemination, contribution of T&I research to professional ethics
