The University of Alicante, working in partnership with the universities, of Murcia, València and Jaume I, and fostered by the AIETI (Iberian Association of Translation and Interpreting Studies), announces the 9th AIETI International Conference (AIETI9) to be held on 23-25 January, 2019 at the University of Alicante (Spain) - https://web.ua.es/en/aieti9/home.html
The name of the conference, Translatum nostrum – Hybridity from the Mediterranean seeks to encourage a deep and rigorous analyisis of the current situation and future perspectives of Translation and Interpreting Studies. The approach will always be within the research perspective that characterizes AIETI. This involves a concept of research as a fuitful reflection bringing about both a systematic understanding of reality and a vindication of a more tolerant and generous world towards the Other, a world in which translators and interpreters can act as catalysts of the hybridity giving its name and rationale to this conference.
The languages of the conference will be Basque, Catalan, English, Galician, Portuguese and Spanish.
Currently, we are finalizing an agreement with a high-ranking publisher in Spain for the publication of a selection of the conference proceedings. Accordingly, the final decision about the publication of a paper will involve blind peer review.
