Call for Papers

Translating Humo(u)r

Workshop - Call for Participation

It is a truth universally acknowledged that humo(u)r travels badly and, furthermore, as it sets out on its journey, it inevitably meets up with the insurmountable barriers of both different languages and different cultures. As we reach the middle of the second decade of the new millennium, with technology allowing humo(u)r to travel the planet in real time, what are the new hurdles (technological and otherwise) that it must face?

The aim of this workshop is to explore and examine different facets of the inter-lingual/cross-cultural translation/transmission of humo(u)r, ranging from theoretical problems through to up-to-date issues concerning multimedia translation.

Papers are welcome on all aspects of humo(u)r especially those looking at the issue from an interdisciplinary viewpoint.

Proposals should be sent to by 30th June 2014. Notification of paper acceptance will be sent by 31st July 2014. Acceptance of your submitted contribution entails automatic registration for the TRANSLATA II conference and conference fees apply.
