Shifting Powers: The Ethics of Translation in a Transforming Asia

26th-29th September 2016, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

This conference seeks to interrogate the role of translators in, and of, Asia as participants in, and commentators on, a changing world. Translators minimise or break down barriers between the ‘I’, ‘you’, ‘we’ and ‘Other’, and in doing so, create inclusive local, regional and global experiences and life trajectories for consumers of linguistic and cultural artefacts. Yet, translation can also be an exclusive process: decisions about what is translated, how and for whom, have far-reaching implications for the inclusion and exclusion of certain communities and/or stakeholders, simultaneously empowering some and disempowering others.

This conference seeks to explore the ethics of translation in a transforming Asia from the perspective of Asian Translation Traditions (ATT): for further information, please check the website.
