    Call for Proposals (panels, papers, roundtables, workshops, “rapid fire” presentations, and posters)

    Following successful conferences in Seoul (2004), Cape Town (2006), Melbourne (2009) and Belfast (2012), IATIS is delighted to announce its call for panel, paper, roundtable, workshop, “rapid fire” PhD presentation and poster proposals for its fifth conference, which will be held at Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais (UFMG), Brazil, from 7th to 10th July 2015.

    Conference Theme

    Multilingual and multimodal forms of interaction, prompted by material and symbolic exchanges in our increasingly globalized world, have brought new challenges to translation and intercultural studies. New technologies in the broadest sense of the word are sought by society in order to allow for a diversity of meanings to be created, exchanged, and disseminated on the basis of equality, complementarity and reciprocity. In this scenario, studies promoting and seeking innovation play a fundamental role in providing insights and solutions to meet those challenges.

    The theme of the conference – ‘Innovation Paths in Translation and Intercultural Studies’ – is meant to foster exchanges and discussions on the topic.

    Within the scope of IATIS 2015, innovation is understood in its broadest sense and includes not only new technological developments but also other relevant aspects, such as social and cultural innovation, including all forms of innovation which lead to changes in interactions and practices in translation and intercultural studies.
