The Department of Interdisciplinary Studies in Translation, Languages, and
Cultures is pleased to announce a two-day international conference on the
translation of dialect in multimedia to be held at Forlí 13-14 May 2010.
Call for Papers
The conference is directed at academics from various disciplines as well as
translators and students who are interested in the translation of dialects in
multimedia contexts. The conference will concentrate on a complex,
interdisciplinary subject area involving linguistics, communication studies,
film studies and translation studies as well as other areas of cultural studies,
sociology and other disciplines.
The main topics to be covered at the conference include dubbing, subtitling
films in dialect and linguistic varieties; theatre translation; cultural
transfer processes in the characteristics of dialects; archaisms,
regionalisms, varieties in the continuum between dialect and standard
language; diglossia (national language and regional or local language;
'official' and 'non official' language); the use of new technologies in the
translation of dialect.
To these areas the Host Committee welcomes proposals for 20-minute papers.
Papers are welcome in the conference languages indicated. Papers presented in
languages other than English will require a further abstract in English to be
distributed as a hand-out during their presentation.
The deadline for sending abstracts in one of the official Conference
languages and in English (500 words) is 31st March, 2010
The Scientific Committee will return its decision around 15th April

such can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered
501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These
