Second DCU International Postgraduate Translation Studies Conference
- Dear All,
(Apologies for cross-posting.)
Just a note to say that the website for the Dublin City University Postgraduate Translation Studies Conference is now up and running and can be accessed at http://www.ctts.dcu.ie/pg-conference.htm . For those of you thinking of submitting abstracts, we'd suggest that you first take a look at the 'Guidelines for Submitting Abstracts' page on the site. The deadline for receipt of abstracts is January 22nd 2005, and applicants will be informed of whether their abstracts have been accepted by February 5th.
More news regarding the conference is that we have now confirmed another guest speaker for the event: Jin Di, the renowned translation theorist and translator of the first Chinese edition of James Joyce's Ulysses. Prof. Jin will be in Dublin to be conferred with honorary membership of the Irish Translators' and Interpreters' Association, and all conference delegates are also invited to attend his conferment (and free wine reception!) at the Irish Writers' Centre, 19 Parnell Square, Dublin 1 on the evening of March 31st (the day before the start of the conference). Again, more details are available on the website.
Best wishes on behalf of the organising committee and looking forward to seeing you in Dublin,
Centre for Translation and Textual Studies
