4-5 February 2006 / Elizabeth Fry Building / UEA, Norwich, UK

Possible directions include:
Â§ auto/biographic presences in translation as personal expression or
Â§ creative writers turning to translation
Â§ problematic types of translation â€"e.g. self-translation, pseudotranslation
Â§ how are historical/cultural, sexual, national or other identities
transferred or transformed through translation?
Â§ psychological and cognitive contexts of translation and interpreting
Â§ socio-political contexts and/or (personal) ideologies.
Â§ spaces between ethical obligations and subjective appropriations
Â§ the translation of marginal and/or minority communities â€"translation
Â§ how does globalisation provide new challenges for the translation of
Â§ visible and invisible translators. How can translation theory, from
DTS to Derrida and interpreting studies engage with issues of
identity, subjectivity and selfhood?
