CFP: The Tasks of the Translator: Developing a Sociocultural Framework for the Study of Translation across the Early Modern World (Saint Louis University: March 20-21)

The Center for Intercultural Studies at Saint Louis University and organizers, Dr. Claire Gilbert (Saint Louis University) and Dr. Michal Jan Rozbicki (Saint Louis University) invite proposals for papers for its  upcoming conference, “The Tasks of the Translator: Developing a Sociocultural Framework for the Study of Translation across the Early Modern World (15th-18th Centuries),” to be held in St. Louis on March 20-21, 2017.

The conference aims to bring together historians, social scientists, and literary scholars whose work explores the experiences, backgrounds, and legacies of translators and interpreters across the world from the fifteenth through the eighteenth centuries. Studies of early modern interculturality, globalization, and empire are increasingly taking language and translation into account when analyzing cultural encounters and transmission. Analyzing institutional and individual practices and strategies as well as the social and cultural contexts in which translators and interpreters were embedded can offer new perspectives about such encounters and cultural transmission. This approach also promises to reveal new insights about the social, political, and intellectual networks that translators and interpreters participated in and helped construct.

Submissions should include: a one-page abstract of the paper with a title and name of the author; the author's brief curriculum vitae; postal address; email address; and phone number. Complete proposals should be emailed as attachments in Microsoft Word to Ms. Mary Bokern at bokernmp@slu.edu with a subject line "Translation Conference Proposal." Panel proposals will be considered. The deadline for submissions is December 1, 2016.
