Linguistic Field(s): Translation

Call Deadline: 15-Jun-2016

Meeting Description:

The dynamic nature of Translation and Interpreting Studies that we currently witness derives to a considerable extent from their interdisciplinary dimension. For a few decades now they have been intertwining with disciplines pertaining to applied linguistics (corpus linguistics, sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics, discourse analysis and pragmatics, cognitive linguistics, etc.), but also with traditionally remote-standing ones, such as computer science. Such partnerships among disciplines oftentimes entail the engagement of a diversity of conceptual and methodological aspects in a converging manner. There are indisputable mutual benefits of interdisciplinary approaches for the disciplines in contact which are enriched with new insights and perspectives in the theoretical realm. But novel methodologies have also emerged in applied studies, opening paths for a wealth of more in-depth or new types of investigations.

Call for Abstracts:

The panel is especially dedicated to interdisciplinary concerns in Translation and Interpreting Studies but welcomes papers on any topics within the theoretical and applied areas of Translation and Interpreting Studies.

Abstract submission guidelines:

1. The title of the paper
2. A list of 3-5 key-words describing the area and focus
3. The name(s) of the author(s) and their affiliation(s)
4. The e-mail address and contact details of the author(s).

Abstracts should be between 250-300 words and should be sent via e-mail attachments to the following address on or before 15 June 2016. You will be notified about the status of your proposal (acceptance/ rejection) on or before 1 July 2016.
