13th meeting of the international Symposium on (Im)Politeness and the 7th meeting of the biannual iMean
24 Jun 2021 - 26 Jun 2021 • Basel, Switzerland
Abstract:
In 2021 the 13th meeting of the international Symposium on (Im)Politeness and the 7th meeting of the biannual iMean (interaction and meaning) conference will be merged for a meeting on the “pragmatics of translation” on 24-26 June, 2021. We will invite papers on translation outcomes and processes which highlight a pragmatic angle of understanding the transfer of language phenomena across cultures and intra-culturally. We approach translation from a broad perspective, including written textual translation from source to target language as well as other modalities such as signing, simultaneous translation or audiovisual translation by professional and lay people. We also include topics such as explaining meaning to each other or translating sensual experience into language.
