Hamad Bin Khalifa University (HBKU)
Doha, Qatar

The Translation and Interpreting Institute (TII) at Hamad Bin Khalifa University’s (HBKU) College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHSS) is now accepting submissions for its 11th International Translation Conference.

This conference aims to explore how the pandemic has triggered a range of upheavals, encompassing the international arena, the academic experience, and the mobilization of national sentiments. These turning-points will be analyzed within diverse cultural and historical contexts, not as moments of sudden rupture, but as a series of short, medium and long-term changes and transdisciplinary shifts.

Starting from 2021, TII will organize the International Translation Conference as a biennial event to allow for more research time and wealthier conversations. Its 11th version will be on March 24-25 and the format will be a series of online presentations and two keynote speeches.

The conference will focus primarily but not solely on changes that have been caused or accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic in the T&I landscape. Presentations in both Arabic and English on the impact of the current pandemic that fit, but are not limited to the following sub-themes, are accepted:
- T&I and Social Media
- T&I Pedagogical Trends and Traditions
- T&I Professional Trends and Praxis
- T&I and Safety Protocols in Healthcare
- T&I in the Arab World after the Pandemic
- T&I Digitized Work Places and Data Security
- Audiovisual Translation and Beyond
- T&I, Diversity and Accessibility
- Changes in Teaching: On-Line delivery and Blended Learning in T&I
- T&I, Cultural, Linguistic, and Social Consequences
- Pandemic Pedagogy and Comparative Perspectives
- Selflessness, Hospitality and Identity
- Memory and Commemoration
