Translata II 2014 Workshop: Translating Humo(u)r

  • Conference Call
  • As part of Trans­lata II, the 2nd Inter­na­tional Con­fer­ence on Trans­la­tion and Inter­pret­ing Stud­ies 2014 the Uni­ver­sity of Inns­bruck (UIBK) is organ­is­ing a Work­shop on Trans­lat­ing Humo(u)r. The Work­shop and the con­fer­ence will be held on Octo­ber 30 – Novem­ber 1, 2014 in Inns­bruck, Aus­tria.

    It is a truth uni­ver­sally acknowl­edged that humo(u)r trav­els badly and, fur­ther­more, as it sets out on its jour­ney, it inevitably meets up with the insur­mount­able bar­ri­ers of both dif­fer­ent lan­guages and dif­fer­ent cul­tures. As we reach the mid­dle of the sec­ond decade of the new mil­len­nium, with tech­nol­ogy allow­ing humo(u)r to travel the planet in real time, what are the new hur­dles (tech­no­log­i­cal and oth­er­wise) that it must face?

    The aim of this work­shop is to explore and exam­ine dif­fer­ent facets of the inter-​lingual/​cross-​cultural translation/​transmission of humo(u)r, rang­ing from the­o­ret­i­cal prob­lems through to up-​to-​date issues con­cern­ing mul­ti­me­dia trans­la­tion. Papers are wel­come on all aspects of humo(u)r espe­cially those look­ing at the issue from an inter­dis­ci­pli­nary viewpoint.

    Accep­tance of your sub­mit­ted con­tri­bu­tion entails auto­matic reg­is­tra­tion for the TRANS­LATA II con­fer­ence and con­fer­ence fees apply.
