3rd Internartional Confernce “EnTRetextos”. Call for Papers

3rd INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE “ENTRETEXTOS”

CALL FOR PAPERS

“Discourse genres, corpus and translation in professional and academic contexts. Challenges and opportunities in the digital age”

UNIVERSITY OF ALICANTE, SPAIN
28-30 OCTOBER 2020

Dear Colleagues,

The IULMA (Interuniversity Institute of Applied Modern Languages) Research Institute is pleased to announce the forthcoming 3rd International Conference EnTRetextos, to be held at the University of Alicante (Spain) in October 28-30, 2020.

The previous EnTRetextos Conferences have undertaken the analysis of the translation of specialized discourses (Valencia, 2016) and the multidisciplinary quality of the research in specialized discourses, as well as the global vision towards these discourses (Castellón, 2018).

Historically, numerous research studies have attempted to explore the three main components that characterize EnTRetextos Conferences: (a) discourse and discourse genres; (b) the study and application of specialized corpora; and (c) specialized translation. These three main research areas have undergone far-reaching changes in recent years, which have been particularly boosted by the introduction of the digital domain in the studies and professions related to specialized discourse. Therefore, this 3rd EnTRetextos Conference aims to bring together specialists in the three aforementioned areas to exchange and share their research on specialized discourse, but with a special emphasis on how the digital age has made an impact on both the quality of the research and the attributes of the specialized discourse under analysis.

We are grateful to the following keynote speakers who kindly accepted our invitation:

  • Giovanni Parodi, Pontifical Catholic University of Valparaíso
  • Carmen Sancho Guida, Technical University of Madrid
  • Jan Chovanec, Masaryk University.
  • Mª Ángeles Orts Llopis, University of Murcia

CONFERENCE TOPICS:

The EnTRetextos 2020 Organizing Committee invites and encourages researchers to send proposals related to the three aforementioned EnTRetextos topics and/or dealing with any of the following panels:

  • Languages for professional and academic purposes.
  • Specialized translation: teaching, research and profession.
  • Discourse analysis: specialized genres, multimodality, discursive communities…
  • New technologies applied to the study of genres, corpus and specialized translation.
  • Corpus linguistics and its application in professional and academic languages.
  • Teaching professional and academic languages.
  • Terminology and terminography.

PAPER CATEGORIES

The following paper categories are welcome:

  • Papers: dealing with some of the topics listed above or any topic related to them;
  • Research in progress. Researchers are invited to submit current projects which are either at the proposal stage or are work in progress; and
  • Roundtables. The Programme Committee invites topical subjects to be proposed for discussion. In the first instance, an abstract describing the proposed topic and participants should be submitted.

Each participant can propose up to a maximum of two proposals in Spanish, English, French or Valencian from January 13 to July 15, 2020 (deadline). Guidelines for the submission of proposals are available at:

The GRIALE research group is pleased to announce the upcoming International Conference on Verbal Humor (CIVH), which will be held in October 23th-25th, 2019 at the University of Alicante (Spain). The GRIALE research group, which promotes the conference, works on verbal humor and irony since 2002 (http://griale.dfelg.ua.es/). This conference will mean the closing of two of our research projects (GENHUMID -FFI2015-64540-C2-1-P (MINECO-FEDER- y GRIALE Observa -PROMETEO 2016/052, Generalitat Valenciana), and the progress of the research project FIGURKID -FFI2016-76047-P (AEI / FEDER, UE). Further, we are convinced that it will be also a great opportunity to bring together several approaches to humor, share knowledge on the latest research on the linguistics of humor and create new research bonds among the researchers.

VOICED. Traducir para la igualdad

Cartel-I-Jornada-VoicedEl lunes 13 de mayo de 2019, en el Salón de Grados de la FFTIC, tendrá lugar la I Jornada VOICED: TRADUCIR PARA LA IGUALDAD.

En línea con los objetivos del proyecto de innovación educativa de la UV VOICED: TRADUCIR PARA LA IGUALDAD, la jornada versará sobre la perspectiva de género en la traducción: ¿se puede (¿debe?) traducir con una perspectiva de género? ¿qué aporta una perspectiva de género en la traducción? ¿de qué estrategias puede servirse un/a traductor/a para traducir de manera inclusiva?

De estos y más aspectos reflexionarán los y las distintas ponentes que conforman el cartel de la jornada, desde la perspectiva académica pero también profesional, y desde diversas áreas dentro de la traducción. La jornada pretende abrir un importante debate sobre la necesidad académica de vencer la ceguera de género en los estudios de grado y postgrado, ofreciendo además interesantes conexiones para el alumnado con el mundo laboral.
