The Translator at Work: Neutrality in Translation and Interpreting

deadline for submissions:

« The Translator at Work: Neutrality in Translation and Interpreting »

Translators and interpreters are expected to be neutral mediators who facilitate dialogue and enable understanding and cooperation between speakers who do not speak the same language. Research has shown, however, that the transfer of information from one language to another is rarely performed without making certain contributions that go beyond the mere rendition of the message being transferred. Translation is a product of cross-cultural interactions that requires linguistic and at times, sociopolitical or even ideological changes.

Connections in the (Post-)Anthropocene

MLCS Annual Graduate Student Confreence, University of Alberta
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, April 14, 2024

In the Anthropocene era, the pace of human development outpaces that of natural evolution, disrupting ecological balance and transforming humans into a potent geological force. Frequently, humans reduce the complexity of other life forms or natural entities on the planet, treating them as mere kinds of resources or energy used by humans without adequate consideration for the future. This perceived human superiority creates a dichotomy between humans and non-humans, further influencing knowledge production dynamics. However, the boundaries between nature and culture have been blurred because of the advancement in science and technology, and nature is not something out there, as a negligible externality.
