Meeting Description:

Following the great success of the first International Conference hosted by the University of Naples “L’Orientale” last year, this year the University of Catania, Italy, will host the second edition of the Conference.

Drawing on the current debate on the several modes in which alterity and diversity are construed through language, the conference intends to trigger a reflection on the relationship between translation and the concept of 'alterity'; on the relationship between language and cultural identity; on the relationship between language and gender and/or sexual identity also in relation to translation; and on any form of language diversification arising from contamination/hybridization/migration of genre(s), discourse(s) and text-typologies (such as changing forms and formats between spoken and written language, specialized discourse vs. popularized discourse, and so forth).

Plenary Speakers:

Professor Susan Bassnett
Professor Augusto Guarino
Professor Sergia Adamo
Professor Pietro Taravacci
Professor Delia Chiaro

Call for Papers:

This year, researchers and scholars are invited to submit original contributions exploring Language and Diversity by focusing on the issue of 'alterity' in discourses and translation in/of different cultures and languages.

We invite submissions for abstracts for 20-minute presentations in any field related to the following macro-areas and methodological approaches that are to be understood as general guidelines and can be further extended:

- Critical discourse analysis
