Meeting Description:

TRANSLATA II is the second in a series of triennial conferences on Translation and Interpreting Studies at the University of Innsbruck. Due to the overwhelming response from participants across the world when it was launched in 2011, TRANSLATA has already emerged as one of the largest international conferences in its field. The proceedings of TRANSLATA I were published by Peter Lang in the series 'Forum Translationswissenschaft' (vols. 15 & 16).

TRANSLATA is conceptualized as a forum for basic research in translatology, whose aim it is to refocus on translation proper (= professional translation and interpreting) as the core object of study. In this age of constant paradigmatic changes, research in Translation Studies has tended to deal with anything but translation. Accordingly, TRANSLATA – openness to interdisciplinary perspectives notwithstanding – seeks to retrieve translation proper as the main object of study within Translation Studies.

Plenary Speakers:

- Edwin Gentzler (University of Massachusetts Amherst)
- Gyde Hansen (Copenhagen Business School)
- Lew N. Zybatow (University of Innsbruck)

Registration fee: € 90
Early bird registration fee (deadline 15th July 2014): € 70
