Theory and Practice Meet: NY, April 3-5, 2014

The American Translation & Interpreting Studies Association holds their seventh biennial conference, ATISA VII: Where Theory and Practice Meet. The conference will be held on the campus of New York University in the heart of New York City.

ATISA encourages, supports, and furthers the study of translation and interpreting by disseminating knowledge and research relevant to all areas of language mediation, regardless of discipline. Translation and Interpreting Studies here means the study of all forms of communication between languages, including translation, interpreting, localization, bilingual text revision, cross-cultural communication, and the various specializations, tools, and technologies involved in such activities. Presentations focusing on the act of communicating between human languages from a wide range of disciplines and methodologies, including translation studies, interpreting studies, transfer studies, applied linguistics, cognitive science, cultural studies, sociology, anthropology, education, and other social sciences are welcome.

Presentations must follow the standards of scholarship of their respective disciplines, and they must show the connection of their work to Translation and Interpreting Studies.

Scholars are invited to submit 200-300 word proposals (including references) for individual papers. Authors should classify their proposals as: (1) empirical or theoretical; and (2) translation or interpreting related. Presentations will be 20 minutes in length, followed by discussion.

Proposals should be submitted electronically in pdf format at: The deadline for submission of proposals is October 1, 2013. Notification of acceptance will be made by November 15, 2013.
