  • 10-12 May: XIV Congreso Internacional de LingĂŒĂ­stica de Corpus (CILC2023)/14th International Conference on Corpus Linguistics.The theme of the conference is Corpus Linguistics in the Digital Era: Genres, Registers and Domains. Most studies based on or derived from corpora, implicitly or explicitly, deal with the notion of genre, and other concepts such as those of register and domain. In Corpus Linguistics, the importance of these concepts has been repeatedly highlighted in studies by Douglas Biber and other linguists working in the field of Corpus Linguistics. This is the reason why the theme selected for the conference is Corpus Linguistics in the digital era, with especial reference to the analysis of genres, registers and domains. The conference will also cater for other themes such as the analysis of genres, registers and domains in Applied Linguistics and statistical analyses.

  • 25-27 May: NPIT 6 – ‘Unstated’ mediation: On the ethical aspects of non-professional interpreting and translation. Scholars from Translation Studies and other disciplines (such as Sociology or Communication Studies) are increasingly becoming more interested in the multi-faceted and thought-provoking topic of interpreting and translation provided by non-professionals of any age and background, with or without remuneration, under a variety of circumstances, and for a wide spectrum of reasons. Non-professional interpreting and translation (NPIT) are widespread enough to allow us to see translation and interpreting not only as recognized and established professions but also as a ubiquitous social practice of much-needed mediation. In this context, one might attempt to investigate NPIT not merely as an opposite, and perhaps problematic, or even renegade, pole to professional mediation, but as ‘unstated’ mediation. NPIT presents an acceptable practice, which, however, remains less visible and less appreciated not only by professionals and society in general but even by non-professional interpreters and translators themselves. Registration until 1 May. Nicosia, Cyprus.
  • 27 May: 7 CATS Questioning the Universal Through Translation: Translating the Social Sciences and Humanities Today /L’universel Ă  l’épreuve de la traduction: ActualitĂ©s de la traduction des sciences humaines et sociales. In recent years, the translation of the humanities and social sciences has become increasingly important, both within translation studies (as one of its fields) and in the disciplines concerned (philosophy in the first place, but also anthropology, sociology, literary studies, etc.) which are also questioning the translation of their discourses. This interest may come from the fact that every discipline experiences, at some point, the need to be translated. How is this disciplinary translation done? Who has the skills to do this translation? The specialist in the discipline who wishes to translate, or the translator who wants to specialize in a discipline of the humanities and social sciences? What does this type of translation require? Toronto, Canada
