Normativity and Resilience in Translation and Culture

Normativity and Resilience in Translation and Culture

27 – 29 May 2019 Warsaw Norms can be broadly defined as some kind of protection from change, a prescribed standard whose violation involves distortion and deformation, a transformation into something which the normal thing is not. Though derived from carpentry, the art of construction of rigid objects (normais the Latin word for carpenter's square), normativity has become a measure of things more evanescent than furniture – of ethical, social, aesthetic or political judgements, of certain cultural norms which may seem to be universal only given that they survive the test of being transferred, or translated, to other cultures.

Translation Beyond the Margins

Tenth Annual International Translation Conference Translation and Interpreting Institute (TII) College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHSS) Hamad Bin Khalifa University (HBKU) Doha, Qatar March 26th – 27th, 2019 Call for Papers Translation, by nature, deals with margins. Translators and interpreters still hold a marginal position in society, as they often work in the shadow, and go unseen, despite the fact that global economy and politics hinge on their work. Translation Studies (TS) holds a similar position in the Humanities and the Social Sciences.
Constructing the ‘Public Intellectual’ in the Premodern World

Constructing the ‘Public Intellectual’ in the Premodern World

Co-hosted by Genealogies of Knowledge & Centre for Translation and Intercultural Studies, University of Manchester, UK 5-6 September 2019 http://genealogiesofknowledge.net/events/public-intellectual/ A notable feature of intellectual history has been the role of translation in the evolution and contestation of key cultural concepts, including those involved in the negotiation of power. We may think here of the extent to which modern terms such as ‘politics’ and ‘democracy’ derive ultimately from classical Greek, often mediated through different languages.

A Host of Tongues…: Multilingualism, Lingua Franca and Translation in the Early Modern Period

An international conference FCSH-UNL, Lisbon, 13th to 15th December 2018 Call for Papers In the 15th and 16th centuries, the linguistic situation in Europe was one of remarkable fluidity. Latin, the great scholarly lingua franca of the medieval period, was beginning to crack as the tectonic plates shifted beneath it, but the vernaculars had not yet crystallized into the national languages that they would become a century later, and bi- or multilingualism was still rife.

ARTIS@NOTTINGHAM2018: Verbal and Visual Paratexts in Translation and Interpreting Studies

An ARTIS Event University of Nottingham, UK 12 September 2018 Broadly understood as the thresholds through which readers and viewers access texts, paratexts have been shown to play a crucial role in the reception and interpretation of texts. While Gérard Genette’s original theorisation of paratexts took place in the context of literary print culture, in recent years the concept has been fruitfully applied to digital contexts and other kinds of texts, notably film, television and video games.
