In today’s rapidly changing global landscape, hospitality emerges as a pivotal focus in academic discourse, especially within Western geopolitical contexts. Hospitality, as a mode of conduct, garners both ardent enthusiasm and staunch opposition. As a concept, it presents both notable limitations and diverse modalities. This multidimensional notion encompasses a right, a privilege, an obligation, an act of sympathy, and an expression of charity. It shapes and is shaped by various environments, from tangible spaces and places to non-places and heterotopias (as articulated by Marc Augé). Its expansive research potential warrants a thorough, interdisciplinary exploration.

“Modern?” CFP

 

Saint Louis University—Madrid, June 7-8, 2024

 

The OED defines “modern” as “being in existence at this time; current, present,” but also as something that is “opposed to the remote past.” Given that the concepts of “past,” “present” and “future” are not fixed, but, to paraphrase Einstein, illusory, the meaning of “modern” itself is hard to pin down.

« 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.
