Linguistic Field(s): Discourse Analysis; Translation

Call Deadline: 01-Jun-2010

Meeting Description:

The Chalermprakiat Centre of Translation and Interpretation (CCTI), Faculty of
Arts, Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok is pleased to announce its first
international conference on translation and interpretation, to be held at the
Imperial Queen's Park Hotel on 1-3 November, 2010.

The conference aims to promote translation and interpretation as an emerging
field in Thailand, and to encourage an exchange of ideas among translation and
interpretation scholars as well as practitioners from across the world. Papers
are invited on all aspects of translation and interpretation.

Twenty-first century Thailand sees a growing need for translation as a
result of
globalization and the advent of cyberspace. The Free Trade Agreement between
Asian countries to be signed in 2010 will likely increase trade activities, but
this may be hampered by communication breakdowns stemming from differences in
linguistic and cultural background. Translators and interpreters therefore play
an important role in intercultural communication and in fostering good
between peoples.

With Translation Studies a relatively new field in Thailand, the
conference will
serve as a forum for an exchange of ideas among scholars, translators and
interpreters from across the globe.
