Between Policies and Poetics: Itineraries in Translation History
The 3rd International Conference on Itineraries in Translation History is held on June 13-14, 2014 at the University of Tartu.
Translation policy and translation poetics can be terms that are parallel or overlapping or, in some cases, oppose each other. Research into translation history often means studying either the individual poetics of a translator, be it then the explicit or implicit poetics of translation or the politics (state-level) / policies (institutional level) of translation created in or by a system to serve a particular purpose.
The conference focuses on the policies of translation, their function, objectives and consequences, as well as the interaction, tension and/or opposition of the concepts of translation policy and the poetics of translation.
The language of conference presentations and discussions will be English.
