The Poetics of Asian Cinemas Conference

The Poetics of Asian Cinemas Conference

Description

The Poetics of Asian Cinemas conference is being held at Lancaster University on 10-12 July 2017. This event is the 12th Asian Cinema Studies Society (ACSS) conference. The conference theme may be summarized by the term “poetics” – chiefly, a concern with Asian films as aesthetic objects, their artistic functions and effects, and their techniques of staging, composition, editing, sound design, and storytelling. This emphasis marks a departure from the so-called Grand Theories of Asian cinema, and encourages “bottom-up” approaches and “piecemeal theorizing” of films from within and across Asian territories.

Languages and Cultures

Translating Practices: Languages and Translation in Higher Education from a Cross-cultural Perspective

Translating Practices: Languages and Translation in Higher Education from a Cross-cultural Perspective

Description

12 July 2017, and 13 July, 9.30-18.00 - Management School Lecture Theatre 10

This conference will bring languages, cultures, and disciplines into dialogue to map out current trends and identify best practices in the field of translation studies and cross-cultural communication more broadly.

How do we practise, theorise, and teach or learn language and translation today in a Higher Education context? How do UK practices compare in this respect with other European, Asian, and Australian ones? And what is the potential impact of the broader context of a globalised world threatened by isolationist politics on the communication between cultures and on the teaching and theory of translation and language?

Continuing our series of translation events organised by the Authors & the World research hub, including the ‘World Authors and Translators in the Global Circulation of Capital' in July 2015, complementing this year’s ‘The Space in Between: Thinking Translation in Creation’, and building on our experience of teaching language, translation, and cross-cultural communication at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, this conference will bring languages, cultures, and disciplines into dialogue to map out current trends and identify best practices in the field of translation studies and cross-cultural communication more broadly. In addition to the keynote speakers, contributors include members of Lancaster’s Department of Languages and Cultures, Linguistics and English Language, and English and Creative Writing, and colleagues from our Chinese partner institution, Sichuan International Studies University
