The conference ‘Queering Translation – Translating the Queer’, to be held in Vienna from 26 till 28 March 2015, aims to explore the common ground, both on a theoretical and a practical level, of Translation Studies and Queer Studies and promote cross-fertilization between these disciplines.

Possible themes include:

  • Queer theorizing of translation/interpreting

  • Queering translation/interpreting pedagogy
  • Translating/interpreting (for) marginalized sexualities
  • Constructing Queer identities across cultures / in translation
  • Translation of Queer theoretical writing
  • Translation of LGBT fiction/films
  • Queer representations of translators/translation

Presentations will be 20 minutes in length, followed by discussion. Conference languages will be English and German.

Abstract proposals should be sent in by 30 September 2014 to queertranslation@univie.ac.at (queertranslation null@null univie NULL.ac NULL.at)
