“Translator and Interpreter Education in
the New Era: Innovations in Research,
Practice and Training”
hosted by Beijing Foreign Studies University
October 19-20, 2019
Call for Papers
Translator and Interpreter Education is now embracing a new era, which is characterized by rapid digital and technological revolution, and boosted by various development programs such as the "Belt and Road Initiative" in the Chinese context and the global trend of promoting equality, mobility and diversity. New technologies increase the speed and breadth of knowledge turnover, change the very nature of language communication, causing adjustment in every aspect of who says what, to whom, via what platform, for what purpose and with what effect. These developments interact in increasingly complex and pivotal ways with cross-border economic, social and cultural contacts and demographic shifts, which are caused by economic globalization, changing social structures and patterns of mobility, environmental crises, and other factors. Against this backdrop, T&I education at the national and international levels faces both challenges and prospects in terms of skill sets and role sets that are required of translators and interpreters, their employability and working context diversity, course design, teaching pedagogy, assessment and so on. To be more specific, T&I researchers are faced with new and often cross-disciplinary fields of inquiry; practitioners, with the need to adopt novel skills and approaches; trainers, to adjust their educational plan and train students for working in a rapidly changing landscape of digital technology and cross-cultural communicative contexts; and finally students, with the ever increasing demand of being professional, versatile and adaptive.
The international conference on “Translator and Interpreter Education in the New Era: Innovations in Research, Practice and Training” is designed to reflect upon the innovative approaches in research, practice and training that are associated with this changing landscape.
We invite original research papers for presentation related but not limited to the following sub-themes:
• T&I training and pedagogy in the digital era
