Meeting Description: ATISA IX: Contexts of Translation and Interpreting

Biennial Conference of the American Translation and Interpreting Studies Association
University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee / March 29-April 1, 2018

Keynote Speakers:

- Sherry Simon (Concordia University)
- Federico Federici (University College London)

Over the past decade, shifts in disciplinary focus, such as the “sociological turn”; in historical circumstances, marked by international conflict, globalization and mass migration; and in material conditions, especially as they relate to technological advances and the increasing availability of new technologies, have given “context” a new salience in Translation and Interpreting Studies. This has led scholars in the field to address the concept at a theoretical level while also digging deep into specific institutional, professional, historical and socio-cultural contexts of translation and interpreting. In addition, scholars have challenged the Eurocentric and professional focus of traditional models by exploring translation and interpreting in non-Western, non-national, and non-professional contexts, as well as contexts of language teaching and learning. This conference aims to provide a forum for a discussion of the latest research on contexts of translation and interpreting as well as the various theoretical and methodological issues related to such research.
