Meeting Description: 26th Conference of the Canadian Association for Translation Studies (CATS)
‘Science in Translation’
Victoria University (British Columbia), 3-5 June 2013

Program chairs: Sylvie Vandaele and Pier-Pascale Boulanger

Knowledge is circulated through translation, more particularly through the importation of scientific and technical discourses for purposes more diverse than we usually realize. Many of these discourses serve practical purposes, of course, but all are more or less related to patterns of thought based on world views and philosophical stances that at times stand in opposition. The 26th conference of the Canadian Association for Translation Studies (CATS) will concentrate on the role played by translation in the journey of scientific and technical knowledge through language-cultures.

26e congrès de l’Association canadienne de traductologie
« La science en traduction »
Université de Victoria (Colombie-Britannique), 3-5 juin 2013

Organisatrices : Sylvie Vandaele et Pier-Pascale Boulanger

La traduction est un vecteur par lequel le savoir circule, notamment par l’importation de discours scientifiques et techniques, aux finalités plus variables qu’on ne le pense habituellement. Certes, nombre de textes ont une finalité pratique, mais tous sont reliés, plus ou moins étroitement, à des filiations de pensée mobilisant des visions du monde et des positions philosophiques parfois opposées. Dans le cadre de son XXVIe congrès, l’Association canadienne de traductologie invite à réfléchir au rôle joué par la traduction dans la pérégrination des savoirs scientifiques et techniques à travers les langues-cultures.
