The one-day conference Translation and Gender will provide a forum for the exchange of ideas in the disciplines of translation, interpretation, terminology, linguistics, literature, culture, cross-cultural and intercultural communication with regard to the concept of gender.
The aim of the conference is to focus on:
- bridging gaps between theories and practices in translation and gender,
- foregrounding varieties of exploratory research or gender-specific elements in translation skills and competencies,
- highlighting the under-examined issues relating to gender in the practice of translation and terminology in different linguo-cultural contexts,
- addressing the gender-translation research with regard to the national, regional, EU, UN agendas in gender equality policies and gender mainstreaming.
