Meeting Description:

NPIT2 provides an interdisciplinary forum for researchers focusing on translation and interpreting in everyday settings.

Within the field of interpreting and translation studies, non-professional interpreting and translation has always been under appreciated, neglected and under-researched by academia. Nonetheless, it remains and will continue to be the most widespread form of translational action.

NPIT2 aims to provide a forum for researchers and students to share information, perspectives and experiences concerning non-professional interpreting and translation. Furthermore, this forum serves to expand the theoretical, methodological, ethical and disciplinary approaches related to this form of linguistic and cultural mediation.

Call for Papers:

We invite proposals for presentations on any theoretical, empirical and methodological aspect of research related to this conference theme.

For all proposals, the conference language will be English.

Three categories of proposals will be considered: (i) individual presentations, (ii) panels, and (iii) posters.

Topics may include but are not limited to:

- Ad hoc translation/interpreting
- Adult/Child language brokering (oral and/or written), family interpreting
- Literacy brokering
- Brokering between deaf adult signers and hearing groups
- Non-professional, church/religious interpreting and translation
- Non-professional media interpreting and translation (fansubbing, fandubbing, fanfiction)
- Non-professional interpreting and/or translation in the field of: war and conflicts, NGOs, asylum seeking, health care, community and social care, etc.
- Interdisciplinary approaches to the study of non-professional interpreting and translation

Proposals for Individual Papers or Posters:

Each paper presentation will be scheduled for 20 minutes plus 10 minutes discussion. Posters will be given extra time during a one-hour poster session. For individual presentations and posters, a 300-word abstract (plus references) should be sent to the NPIT2-organisers (npit2uni-mainz.de) by October 31, 2013. Abstracts will be double blind peer-reviewed and evaluated anonymously by the NPIT Advisory Board and Local Organisers. All contributions will be assessed on the basis of their relevance to the conference theme as well as their theoretical background and research design.

Proposals for Panels:

Panels make up a collection of up to four paper presentations given within a, 120-minute time-frame and cover one of the particular topics listed above. Panels will be reviewed en bloc and based on the abstracts provided by the panel organizers.

Panel organisers are required to submit the following by email (npit2uni-mainz.de):

- A general overview abstract (500 words including examples and references) describing the whole panel
- A list of invited contributors and/or discussants (name, affiliation, email address)
