Call for papers for the Special Issue (2019): 
''Translating and Interpreting Linguistic and Cultural Differences in a
Migrant Era''

The next monographic issue of the I-LanD Journal will be centred on exploring
the role which translation and interpreting play as activities which
potentially foster the recognition or misrecognition of, amongst others,
sexual, ethnic, racial and class differences in an era of great waves of
migrations, and will be edited by Eleonora Federici (University L'Orientale,
Naples), and Rosario Martín Ruano and África Vidal Claramonte (University of
Salamanca). 
Given the thematic scope of this issue, contributions should adhere to any of
the following broad research strands: 

- Translating gender and sexualities
- Translation and interpreting as cultural mediation
- Translation and ideology
- Translating and interpreting cultural differences in professional fields
- Translation, adaptation and negotiation of gender and ethnic differences in
TV series, cinema and the Web
- Translation and representation of political and cultural differences in the
press
- Recognition and marginalisation of sexual, cultural and ethnic differences
in translated texts
- Ethics and pedagogy of translation

Contributions are expected to be discursively inspired in their methodology,
so that they may draw on any of the following approaches: Translation Studies,
Linguistics, Critical Discourse Analysis, Semiotics, Gender Studies, Cultural
Studies, Postcolonial Studies, Narratology, Social Sciences and Media Studies,
to name but a few. 

Original contributions in English will be considered for publication in this

Description:
The role of translation and interpreting is crucial in the mediation of
discourses and in the evolution of literary/linguistic/cultural
representations of differences in various sociocultural contexts. A critical
analysis of dominant models of translation and interpreting in the various
professional fields and a reflection on the ethical implications of
translation and interpreting are paramount for a rethinking of theories and
practices of mediation, translation and interpreting in Western societies. 

Aims:
The aim of this monographic number is to offer a Translation and Interpreting
Studies insight into the ethical challenges of translation and interpreting in
an era of great waves of migrations through investigations on these activities
as fields of recognition or mis-recognition of, amongst others, sexual,
ethnic, racial and class differences.
