Description

The 6th International Conference on Cognitive Research on Translation and Interpreting

(8-10 November 2019)

The International Conference on Cognitive Research on Translation and Interpreting started in 2014 at the Centre for Studies of Translation, Interpreting and Cognition (CSTIC), University of Macau. Since then, five conferences have been held at the University of Macau (2014-2016), Beijing Foreign Studies University (2017) and Renmin University of China (2018). The conference has become an international forum for the presentation and discussion of up-to-date cognitive research on translation and interpreting.

The 6th International Conference on Cognitive Research on Translation and Interpreting will be held on 8-10 November 2019 at Southwest University, Chongqing, China. This conference will focus on theoretical issues, methodology advancement and interdisciplinary approaches in the cognitive research on translation and interpreting. Papers presented at the conference will be selected through peer review process to be published in a special issue of Cognitive Linguistic Studies or a book of Springer’s New Frontiers of Translation Studies series.

During the conference, a TREC Network meeting and several workshops on empirical research methodologies in translation studies will also be held.

About TREC Network

http://pagines.uab.cat/trec/content/homeinicio

TREC (Translation, Research, Empiricism, Cognition) is a network of Translation scholars and Research groups united by their joint interest in Empiricism and the rigorous investigation of the human translation process, especially with respect to Cognition. The aim of TREC is to facilitate research and enhance comparability across studies within empirical and experimental translation research with a focus on cognition. Translating is a highly complex and demanding cognitive task and as such has been the object of empirical and experimental research since the 1980s. A variety of approaches have been tested, but empirical and experimental translation research with a focus on the process / product interface still faces methodological and theoretical challenges. There is a need for validated data collection instruments and established data analysis models, which calls for the exchange of theoretical models, research tools and available technology among researchers. The thematic network of empirical and experimental research in translation creates a link between several research groups, and its main aim is to promote the exchange of data and information in order to improve the development of this type of research.
