SYMPOSIUM/WORKSHOP: Languages and Linguistics, DELSU
« on: November 07, 2017, 10:45:19 PM »
The Department of Languages and Linguistics, Delta State University Abraka is organizing a One day Regional Symposium/Workshop of the Association for Translation Studies in Africa (ATSA) on Translation in developing contexts. By the multidisciplinary nature of Translation Studies (TS), the event scheduled for the 1st of December, 2017 will attract translation practitioners and researchers as well as scholars from other disciplines.
According to Dr. Mrs. R. O. Mebitaghan, Head of Department of Languages and Linguistics, the symposium focuses on translation and issues of societal development in the African (Nigerian) contexts. The follow-up workshop is designed to provide opportunity for mutual exchange of experiences on research methods and projects amongst particip*nts as well as create a network of scholars (irrespective of their various disciplines) for ATSA. This is pertinent because ATSA amongst others seeks to chart an African agenda for Translation Studies as an emerging discipline in Africa while decolonizing translation discourse in the African space
This one day regional symposium/workshop takes place at the 750A LT at site 3, Delta State University, Abraka, Delta State. This event will bring together researchers, practitioners and those who are interested in Translation Studies in Africa and beyond. It will explore the intersection of translation with all its paraphernalia in developing contexts bringing to bear its importance and opportunities in Africa from a broad and inclusive perspective. This will be delivered .exclusively through presentations, discussion panels, and syndicate sessions where workshop particip*nts will have the opportunity to share insights and strategies, considering:
Which policies and practices are supporting translation in different contexts in Africa?
What is the importance of translation studies across different disciplines?  What role does translation play in developing nations?
How do translation studies impact our communities?
What are the challenges /experiences in the teaching of translation? What strategies can help to address these challenges?
What insights do the perspectives, concepts and terminologies of different disciplines offer in addressing the concerns of translation studies in Africa?
