Second International Conference on Translation Studies ICTS
Translating Asia: Convention and Invention
21-22 June 2016, University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce, Bangkok, Thailand


Research in translation studies in Asia has long been fruitful in partnership with the discipline of linguistics and its sub-disciplines such as applied linguistics, sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics, text linguistics, corpus linguistics, etc.  Moreover, the interdisciplinary research has currently been enriched even more by the various social sciences such as cultural studies, gender studies, colonial studies, communication arts, actor network theory, multimodality, etc. While conventional approaches have been the roots and branches of translation studies establishing firm foundation for the discipline, innovative approaches help further nourish and fertilise translation studies to flourish and spread across Asia.

The International Conference on Translation Studies (ICTS) as an interdisciplinary conference serves as a space for both novice and experienced researchers to present, discuss, debate, share and exchange their ideas in translation studies with the focus on translation of Asian languages and cultures in an academic and friendly environment and to publish their research for an international audience.
