Call for Papers

1) Title : Fourth Biannual Conference of the
American Translation and Interpreting Studies Association
“Meeting at the Border: Profile of the Language Mediator”

April 3-5, 2008
University of Texas at El Paso

The American Translation and Interpreting Studies Association (ATISA) invites you to attend the
fourth ATISA Conference, “Meeting at the Border: Profile of the Language Mediator.” The conference
will be held at the University of Texas-El Paso April 3-5, 2008.
ATISA encourages, supports, and furthers the study of translation and interpreting studies by
disseminating knowledge and research relevant to all areas of language mediation, specifically translation
and interpreting, regardless of discipline. "Translation and interpreting studies" here means the study of
all forms of communication between languages, including translation, interpreting, localization, bilingual
text revision, cross-cultural communication, and the various specializations, tools, and technologies
involved in such activities. Presentations focusing on the act of communicating between human languages
from a wide range of disciplines and methodologies, including translation studies, interpretation studies,
applied linguistics, cognitive science, cultural studies, ethnology, sociology, anthropology, education, and
other social sciences are welcomed. Presentations must follow the standards of scholarship of their
respective disciplines, and they must show the connection of their work to translation and interpreting
studies.
ATISA IV will be held in the world's largest binational, bicultural, and bilingual metropolitan
areas, El Paso-Cd. Juárez. It is an ideal location for the dissemination of information on intercultural
communication. You will have the opportunity to network with translation and interpreting scholars and
educators from the Borderlands, Texas, and from across the nation and world.
Translation and interpreting scholars are invited to submit proposals for papers. The focus of the
meeting is the acquisition and development of the language mediator's skills set. However, presentations
on all aspects of translation and interpreting studies are welcome. Papers will be divided into sections on
teaching and learning, theory, and research. Presentations will be 20 minutes in length, followed by
discussion. The deadline for receipt of proposals is October 31, 2007.
