Meeting Description:

ATISA VIII: The Eighth Biennial Conference of the American Translation & Interpreting Studies Association
''Translation and Interpreting and/as Globalization: Redrawing the Boundaries of TIS''

ATISA encourages, supports, and furthers the study of translation and interpreting by disseminating knowledge and research relevant to all areas of language mediation, regardless of discipline. Translation and Interpreting Studies here encompasses the study of all forms of communication between languages, including translation, interpreting, localization, bilingual text revision, cross-cultural communication, and the various specializations, tools, and technologies involved in such activities.

Call for Papers:

Presentations focusing on the act of communicating between human languages from a wide range of disciplines and methodologies, including translation studies, interpreting studies, transfer studies, applied linguistics, cognitive science, cultural studies, sociology, anthropology, education, and other social sciences, are welcome. While presentations may follow the standards of scholarship of their respective disciplines, they must demonstrate a connection to Translation and Interpreting Studies.

Scholars are invited to submit 200-300 word proposals for individual papers. Authors should classify their proposals as empirical or theoretical. Presentations should be 20 minutes in length, followed by discussion. Information on Pre-Conference Workshops is forthcoming.

Proposals should be submitted electronically in pdf format at:
