ABOUT THE CALL FOR PAPERS:
ATISA VI promises to be an exciting conference where new ideas are generated, disciplinary boundaries are crossed, and research on all aspects of translation and interpreting, from cognition and social action to teaching and learning, is shared. Translation and Interpreting scholars are invited to submit 200-300 word proposals for individual papers in pdf format. Presentations on all aspects of translation and interpreting studies are welcome. Presentations will be 20 minutes in length, followed by discussion. There will be sessions all day Friday and Saturday.
ABOUT THE CONFERENCE VENUE:
The Isla Grand Beach Resort will provide a superb conference location and an ideal venue to meet new and old colleagues in the field, at a time of the year when the weather in subtropical Texas is perfect to enjoy nature and good company. Across the impressive Queen Isabella Causeway, South Padre Island is located 20 miles from Brownsville, a border town with a great, centuries-old history of cross-cultural exchange and bilingual tradition. Brownsville is home to a campus of The University of Texas where Translation and Interpreting have been taught continuously for nearly three decades. All in all, an ideal location for the dissemination of our discipline and its academic practices.
