The Translation Turn in Cultural Studies
Centre for Translation and Comparative Cultural Studies
15th November, 2003
This conference addresses the various issues that are raised by the recent move towards translation studies within the field of cultural studies. Although the cultural studies world has been painfully slow in recognising the value of research in the field of translation, in recent years the significant parallels and the sheer extent of the overlap between these two interdisciplinary fields has compelled many cultural studies scholars to take what has been termed the `translation turn'.
Invited Speakers: Mary Snell-Hornby, Rosaleen Howard Proposals for papers of 20 minutes are invited on the following topics: the power relations that come in to play in the choice of texts to be translated how different cultures construct their image of writers and texts trough translation the role of translation in the construction of literary canons how certain texts become cultural capital across linguistic boundaries the role that translation plays in colonial and post- colonial identity construction processes such as mimicry.
what Venuti has called `the ethnocentric violence of translation'.
It is hoped that a publication will result from the proceedings. Abstracts of about 300 words for 20 minute papers should be sent by 30 July 2003.

Quality in translation - Academic and professional perspectives
Universidad Europea de Madrid, Villaviciosa de Odón (Madrid), Spain
25th-27th February 2004
Recent advances in technology are increasingly gaining importance in the field of translation and interpreting, entailing major changes not only in the training of future professionals but also in the everyday practice of those already established on the market.
These technological advances have undoubtedly served to enhance the productivity of translators and interpreters. At the same time, however, they have contributed to new levels of competition within the sector and created a new type of global working environment, which has not always led to improved working conditions for the professional translator. Given these developments, the quality of the work of a professional translator (or more precisely, the certification of this quality) is rapidly becoming a key variable in the attempt to improve working conditions and achieve public recognition of their work. Thematic areasWithin the overarching Conference theme, Quality in Translation - Academic and Professional Perspectives, participants are invited to contribute in any of the following thematic areas: Professional translation and the language industries Information and communication technology in translation Code of professional conduct in translation For more information, visit
