    (Re) thinking translations

    Methodologies, objectives, perspectives

    In the last four decades, scholars have begun to go beyond the traditional perspective of linguistic and literary studies, and to consider the translations as cultural practices and the result of various processes of cultural and intellectual “negotiation” between two different contexts. In recent years also historians have progressively started to take a close interest in translations as sources to investigate the ways in which knowledge and ideas were constructed, disseminated, re-elaborated and assimilated in new cultural, social and political contexts. The aims of this international conference is to encourage an interdisciplinary dialogue on these problems, bringing together scholars, graduate students and early career researchers from Translation Studies, History, History of Book, History of Science, Literary Studies and related disciplines who are interested in discussing methodologies, objectives and perspectives in the study of translations.

    Literary Circulations in South Asia: Producing, Translating, Preserving Texts

    This conference aims at strengthening, sometimes even initiating, interdisciplinary discussions around a notion which is crucial for the understanding of literary cultures in South Asia, beyond the chronological, spatial and linguistic boundaries. The “circulation” of persons, groups, things and ideas, has obviously played a major role in shaping the evolution of the South Asian subcontinent since the ancient times up to the contemporary period.

    Journée d'étude - Langage

    Christianity, language contact, language change

    The present workshop addresses questions of language contact and language change, as well as language standardization in the Christian context both in Europe and in the New World (Americas, Africa) through a study of diachronic and synchronic corpora. Special attention is paid, on the one hand, to the role of translation as a sight of language contact, and on the other hand, to register variation as an indicator of differential propagation of innovations appeared in Christian context.

    Instances of power and cultural discourse

    Intercultural exchange in the age of globalization, second edition

    In the context of today’s social, political and economic changes, power is one of the governing principles of culture. Power comes in many shapes and sizes and it manifests itself under various forms: it can be tyrannical or a combination of forces (Foucault); it can be charismatic, traditional and rational (Weber) or the opposite – manipulative; it can also appear as a system of diluted forces that spring from the “social field” (Bourdieu); it can remain in the unconscious or it can manifest itself in the speech act. However it may appear, it has become clear that power shapes the course of the creation, interpretation and analysis of literary texts and other cultural products.

    Les normes de l'écriture scientifique en discussion

    En sciences sociales, des chercheurs issus de diverses disciplines s’interrogent sur les limites de l’écriture scientifique, par exemple sa dimension narrative et l'ancrage référentiel qui remet en question le statut de crédibilité du texte scientifique. Ces débats sur les formes de l’écriture scientifique seront au cœur de notre atelier. Notre but est d’explorer ces expérimentations scripturales et d’étudier la façon dont elles expriment, problématisent, justifient et/ou renégocient les normes d’écriture qui semblent généralement acceptées dans chaque discipline.

    Power and social exclusion

    Insights looking at language

    Ce numéro thématique de Language, Discourse & Society se focalise sur les exclusions sociales et les enjeux de pouvoir associés. L'exclusion sociale peut être appréhendée comme un ensemble d'actions plus ou moins concertées, situées dans le temps et dans l'espace, et exécutées par une personne vis-à-vis d'un tiers. Une attention particulière est accordée au langage en tant qu'outil de l'exclusion sociale, mais aussi de résistance à une telle discrimination et oppression.

    What remains of postmodernity?

    Since the 70s, the word postmodernity has articulated a tendency, a state of mind, and a condition that resists conceptualization or complete definition. Although the intellectual community has agreed to situate J. F. Lyotard and his key work, The Postmodern condition (1979), as the origin of the debate on this phenomenon, the truth is that the literary theorist Ihab Hassan had already used the word systematically in 1971. Since that date, the notion has spread across the fields of Literature, Architecture, Visual Arts, and the Social Sciences. These are two of the problems that one faces when approaching the surface of the postmodern phenomenon: its lack of definition and its ambiguous periodization.
