3rd Postgraduate Symposium
Cultural Translation: In Theory and as Practice

Call for Papers
Date: 18th May 2016

Times: 09:30 – 17:30

Keynote Speaker: Anthony Pym (Professor of Translation and Intercultural Studies, Rovira i Virgili University, Spain; also President of the European Society for Translation Studies)

Cultural translation, as put by Anthony Pym in Exploring Translation Theories, is a paradigm that concerns “general cultural processes rather than finite linguistic products” and “helps us think about a globalizing world in which ‘start’ and ‘target’ sides are neither stable nor entirely separate.” As every translation activity inextricably involves a certain degree of cultural transfer, this symposium centering on the theme of cultural translation hopes to provide a forum in which participants can exchange ideas on various topics pertinent to this very topical area of translation studies. We invite papers that explore the following topics, amongst others:
• Theories and practices of cultural translation;
• Intercultural encounters;
• Translation between cultures;
• Postcolonialism and the politics of translation;
• Ethnicity, language, representation and cultural/national identity;
• Re-visiting the assumptions of translation;
• Ethical and political issues in translation;
• Untranslatability and linguistic and cultural consequences thereof.

Please submit an abstract (no more than 300 words) and a short biography (max. 150 words) to uontranslation2016 by no later than Friday, 18th March 2016 (5p.m.).

Registration fee: £7 (includes lunch)
