Meeting Description:

CERLIS, the Research Centre on Languages for Specific Purposes of the University of Bergamo, organizes the next Conference on Translation in the Profession. After the successful 3rd Valencia/Napoli Colloquium on Gender & Translation, jointly organized by the GenText Research Group of the Universitat de València, the Dipartimento di Studi Letterari, Linguistici e Comparati of the Università di Napoli ‘L’Orientale’, and the GETLIHC Research Group (Grup de Estudis de Gènere: Traducciò, Literatura, Història i Comunicaciò), CERLIS takes over the initiative and proposes a Conference whose aim is to offer a broad view of research on Translation and Gender in the Profession around the world. The theme will be tackled from transdisciplinary and cross-cultural perspectives, with various methodological approaches for LSP analysis (Translation Studies, Translation Theory and Practice, Applied and Cognitive Linguistics, Social Semiotics, Corpus Linguistics, etc.), especially in regard to discourses of academia, law, business, science, medicine (and their popularized forms), as well as tourism and the media, with a specific focus on gender perspectives.
