CALLS FOR PAPERS
3rd Graduate Symposium: New Voices in Portuguese Translation Studies III, FCSH-UNL, Thursday 6th February 2020. https://newvoicespts.wordpress.com/
Following the success of the 1st and 2nd Graduate Symposium in Translation Studies, held in 2018 and 2019, we are delighted to announce a second edition to be held in February 2020. Like last year, this Symposium aims to provide a forum where students of Translation and Translation Studies can develop their presentation skills in a safe environment. It is part of a broader initiative to develop Translation Studies in Portugal by offering a support framework for young researchers who might wish to go on to pursue a career in the field: hence, feedback will be offered to any participant that actively requests it.
The Symposium is aimed primarily at Masters or Doctorate students, though people specializing in Translation at Bachelor’s (licenciatura) and Postdoctorate levels are also welcome. It is open to people from all Portuguese universities and beyond. Papers should be between 15-20 minutes and may be in English or in Portuguese. They may cover any aspect of Translation or Translation Studies. This year our keynote speaker will be Prof. Elena Galvão (FLUP/CETAPS), who will be talking about the interpreting profession.
A short abstract of up to 250 words should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by 15h January 2020, accompanied by a brief biosketch (up to 50 words).
