Across Time, Across the Globe: Interdisciplinary Approaches to Translation and Interpreting Studies

The Third Leeds Postgraduate Conference in Translation and Interpreting Studies.

Conference registration is now open - see here for details.

Following the legacy of the Centre for Translation Studies at the University of Leeds, this Third Biennial Leeds CTS Postgraduate Translation and Interpreting Conference aims to provide a platform for postgraduate scholars in Translation and Interpreting Studies (T&I) to present their research projects and exchange ideas with peers and senior colleagues. In line with our research culture at the University of Leeds, this conference aims to foster collaboration and communication between researchers from different disciplines and encourage theoretical and methodological exchanges.

T&I has developed from poly-disciplinary origins into an inter-discipline, which is reflected in the conference central theme: “Across Time, Across the Globe: Interdisciplinary Approaches to Translation and Interpreting Studies”. It also features two dimensions, the time dimension extends from the early practical and theoretical approaches to present-day media and political discourses, and the geographic dimension traverses from Anglophone zones to other world language areas. In engaging the multitude objects of study with inter-disciplinary approaches, we aim to gain new insights into the study of products, processes, agents and social-cultural contexts of T&I, and also address some challenges faced by T&I investigations that share borders with various disciplines. Therefore, this conference will cover a range of current trends in T&I.

Leeds CTS Conference distinguishes itself in three ways. First, it is scheduled compactly in one day with two keynote speeches, a round-table discussion and several parallel sessions. Second, it brings together leading scholars who will engage in discussions and interact with students. Third, it offers free registration.
