Alicante Journal of English Studies. Call for Papers – 2019 issue

Call for Papers – 2019 issue

MONOGRAPH on The Language of Sports and Adventure Tourism

Editors:
Isabel BALTEIRO & Gunnar BERGH
(University of Alicante, Spain & University of Gothenburg, Sweden)

Abstract proposals submission deadline: December 30th, 2018
Full papers submission deadline: May 30th, 2018

Alicante Journal of English Studies (Revista Alicantina de Estudios Ingleses) is an internationally distributed and well-indexed journal on English Studies published annually (since 1988) by the University of Alicante, Spain. It is available both in paper and electronic formats. Previous issues of the journal can be accessed at the Alicante Journal of English Studies web page at <https://raei.ua.es/>

Alicante Journal of English Studies is currently preparing a Special Issue on the Language of Sports and Adventure Tourism to appear at the end of 2019.

It invites contributions on a variety of aspects of the language of sports and adventure tourism: lexis, semantics, stylistics, discourse analysis, language contact, etc. Contributions should focus on the English language, either in itself, related to, or in comparison or contrast with other language(s).

The notion of “sports” is here to be interpreted as activities in which athletes, players or teams compete against each other, typically involving physical effort. Examples include athletics, boxing, gymnastics, tennis and wrestling, as well as basketball, football, floorball, ice hockey and volleyball (but not billiards, darts, shooting, etc.). By “adventure tourism” we understand outdoor activities relying on features of the natural terrain, and generally requiring specialized equipment (cf. Buckley 2006). Such activities are illustrated by rafting, kayaking, diving, surfing, snowboarding, ice climbing, mountaineering, horse riding as well as various aerial adventures.

In addition to scholarly articles, proposals for book reviews of recent publications related to the field of sports and adventure tourism language are also welcome.

Submissions will be submitted to a double-blind peer-reviewed panel.

Abstracts outlining problematization, methodology and potential conclusions (approx. 400 words, not including bibliographical references) should be submitted before December 30th, 2018 to balteiro@ua.es

Summary of relevant dates:

September, 2018: First CfP
November 17, 2018: Second CfP/Reminder
December 31, 2018: Deadline for submission of abstracts
January 15, 2019: Notification to authors

From September 1 to October 1, 2019: Deadline for submission of final revised papers

Primeros pasos hacia la traducción del futuro: nuevos retos y perfiles

Robert Martínez

Robert Martínez

This presentation reflects on the translation industry and the future translation-related work profiles stemming from natural language processing technologies, artificial intelligence (AI), the use of big data and the automation of tasks and processes in translation.

The impact of technology in the translation professions has led to an exponential leap in the last fifty years. Technologies, together with globalisation and corporate processes of internationalisation, have re-shaped and re-characterised the different socio-professional communities in the language industry, but also their work methods, business opportunities and diversification of products and services.

Nowadays both language service providers and freelance translators have a broad number of electronic tools aimed to enhance, in terms of quality and time-to-market constraints, the ever-increasing demand of translation. Yet, the latest developments in machine translation and fields such as AI make us reflect on the challenges to come in the translation markets.

Following those challenges, opportunities and threats, this presentation aims to show future translation graduates the bigger picture in the language service market so they can envisage the relevant strategies and take the necessary steps to enter the professional translation market. Throughout the presentation a number of formative, professional, formal and business issues will be addressed in order to fill the gap between the profession and the university, helping students gain critical insight on the language service industry, the expectations on newcomers and, above all, the future work profiles that seem to emerge in our current context.
