The School of Language and Communication Studies at the University of East Anglia is pleased to announce a postgraduate conference with the theme “Representations of Discourse“, to be held at the University of East Anglia on Friday 8th June 2012. The theme of the conference is intentionally broad, but will be of particular interest to students pursuing postgraduate studies in translation and related disciplines.
Plenary speakers will include Dr Christopher Hart from the University of Northumbria and Prof Andreas Musolff from the University of East Anglia. The conference will end with a roundtable discussion for delegates, in which the plenary speakers and three non-academic professionals, including professional translators, will participate and offer their diverse insights into issues which have been raised.
Papers given will be published on the conference web-page after the conference. We also hope that a volume of selected papers from the conference will be published, and have started looking into this.
Deadline for receipt of abstracts for presentations and posters: Friday 23rd March 2012.
Full details and the call for papers can be found on the conference homepage: http://www.uea.ac.uk/lcs/eventsnews/discourse
