World Congress on Translation Studies
In the Name of Translation. In Memory of Umberto Eco, Honorary President of the French Society for Translation Studies
Theme: Translation Studies, an autonomous discipline
10-14 April 2017
Paris West University Nanterre-La Défense
The World Congress on Translation Studies, initiated by the Société Française de Traductologie (SoFT), will take place every three years. Its aim is to review this vast field of research and define collectively and officially its orientations in order to affirm its autonomy.
The Congress is open to all specialists (researchers, teachers and translators) who are currently reflecting on translation theory and practice.
The congress will be organised around six key domains with as many disciplined-based subsets that could combine all languages. Each domain is divided into four sessions and each session into four or five related workshops.
