Conference: The Future of Translation in Ireland

Trinity Long Room Hub, 09:00-17:00

We are delighted to announce the first annual conference of the Translation Studies Network of Ireland (TSNI). The Translation Studies Network of Ireland is a network of scholars from across the island of Ireland who have an interest in the study of translation.

Translation has been practised on the island of Ireland for more than a thousand years. Successive phases of Irish history have seen translation play a crucial role in our cultural, political and economic development. Translation has been a key factor in the interaction over the centuries between the different languages spoken on the island. In recent decades, Translation Studies has gained a strong institutional presence in higher education in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. There is a growing body of scholarship on translation being produced by researchers working in Ireland. This scholarship is enriched by the work of scholars around the world who have taken an interest in the role translation has played in the development of culture and society in Ireland. This conference will explore the diversity of translation research in Ireland and examine the scope for future research.
