Translators as cross-cultural go-betweens/ Impliciter, expliciter: Le traducteur comme équilibriste interculturel

The cultural dimension has always been at the heart of the translating process. For the last two decades or so it has also emerged as central in translation studies. Indeed, in all fields in which translation is practised, awareness of changes called for by the shift from one language (and culture) to another has reached a level of theoretical modelling that makes structured comments possible. Coorganized by the University of Liege, the ‘Haute École de la Ville de Liège’ and the Belgian Chamber of Translators and Interpreters, our conference aims at exploring cultural resistance to translation, whatever the area (from poems to pharmaceutical documentation). This should highlight differences in the ways we approach texts and the various strategies that are called upon in front of allegedly untranslatable realia such as translators’ notes, glossary, circumventing paraphrases, unfolding additions. Special attention will be paid to the implicitation and explicitation processes. The two working languages of the conference are French and English.

Englishes in a Multilingual World: New Dynamics of Variation, Contact and Change

For the first 30 years after its establishment as a new sub-field of English linguistics, the study of ‘English as a World Language’ (EWL) was largely conceived of as a monolingual enterprise, with the top research priority being to come to terms with the linguistic and sociolinguistic legacy of colonialism. The focus was on the structural description of the ‘New Englishes’ through identifying their phonetic, morphosyntactic and lexical features and on the discourse-pragmatic and sociolinguistic analysis of their use in monolingual interaction.

Residence Abroad, Social Networks and Second Language Learning

Study/ residence abroad can be a life-changing experience for participants, leading to academic, cultural, intercultural, linguistic, personal and professional gains (BA-UCML, 2012). At the same time, in the UK some student groups remain reluctant to participate, and those who do participate benefit from the experience to varying degrees.  The design of programmes and support systems for students abroad can significantly affect their experience and the benefit they derive from it.
