Translation Studies: Centres and Peripheries

As Holmes states in his seminal paper 'The Name and Nature of Translation Studies', our discipline establishes institutions and discourses around which groups of researchers gather, exchange ideas and develop new theories and models. The growing number of training and research institutions for translation studies and of journals and book series focusing on translation research, the expanding territory of expert forums and blogs on the worldwide web as well as the numerous conference announcements from all over the world are clear indications of an ever increasing interest in the discipline. Whereas initially research, teaching and theory were mainly based in European contexts, promoted under European influence and shaped according to European theoretical perspectives and translation politics, nowadays approaches to translation from different geographies all over the world have been gaining more and more ground. Besides its own 'internal' impetus, translation studies have also been receiving growing attention from scholars in other disciplines. The Germersheim EST conference is designed to provide a framework for discussing centre-periphery relations within the discipline from a multifaceted angle: centre-periphery relations concerning the objects of research, the discourses of Translation Studies, and the links between Translation Studies and other disciplines.

Call for Papers:

The European Society for Translation Studies (EST) is delighted to call for papers for its 7th conference, to be held in Germersheim from 29 to 31 August 2013.

Abstract submissions are invited to the panels as well as to the general theme of the conference. The submissions will be allocated 30 minutes in the program, which includes 20 minutes for presentation and 10 minutes for questions and discussion. To submit a paper proposal, the author does not have to be a member of the EST.

The conference theme is explained here: http://www.fb06.uni-mainz.de/est/index.php

All abstracts should be submitted in English or German, and this also applies for papers to be delivered in other languages (in this case, please indicate your specific language). Please note that due to practical reasons we will only be able to accept a small number of presentations in other languages.
