new opportunities and challenges
University of Leeds
18th - 19th November 2022
**Deadline extended to July 14th
due to high levels of interest**
APTIS 2022 will be in person! Finally, an excellent opportunity to network and disseminate research in person in a central and convenient location after so many months under restrictions.
*If you have accessibility needs around issues like disability, health concerns, or caring duties, including those that might prevent participation in an in-person conference, please contact the organisers.
The University of Leeds is proud to host the 4th Conference of the Association of Programmes in Translation and Interpreting Studies, UK and Ireland (APTIS) on 18-19 November 2022 (in person).
APTIS encourages research into all aspects of translation and interpreting, and especially research that aims to inform the teaching and learning of these subjects at UK and Irish Higher Education Institutions. Previous conferences examined challenges and opportunities involved in the teaching and learning of translation and interpreting and looked to make connections between academic and non-academic settings for such efforts.
The upcoming conference will focus on new opportunities and challenges for translation and interpreting training in the post-pandemic era. In particular we will seek to understand and disseminate the valuable experiences of the pandemic on which we can draw and capitalise to provide more and better training opportunities to a wider array of students.
To this end we invite scholars, practitioners, and other stakeholders to propose papers or workshops that engage largely but not exclusively with the conference theme on translation and interpreting (T&I) training. We welcome contributions from all areas of translation and interpreting studies, ranging from technical translation, to audiovisual translation, sign-language interpreting, machine learning, human-computer interaction and other less investigated topics of T&I.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
The present and future of T&I technology
The present and future of AI for T&I
Developments of new fields in T&I
Developments in localisation training
The future of accessibility in T&I programmes
Latest advances and future prospects for T&I studies as an academic discipline
Building a skills base in T&I (such as project management, content creation, programming)
T&I pedagogy and practice in the post-pandemic context
Challenges and changes brought about by the pandemic in T&I industry
Challenges and changes brought about by the pandemic in T&I training
T&I in the context of language learning
Ergonomic issues in T&I training
Developments in intralingual T&I and their training
The core interest of the conference is in topics that will be relevant in the British and Irish contexts, but we also warmly welcome proposals from those not located in Ireland or the UK.
We are proud and excited to announce the keynote speakers at this year’s APTIS conference:
Yves Gambier, Emeritus Professor of the University of Turku
Claudio Fantinuoli, Senior Lecturer and Researcher at the University of Mainz/Germersheim.
