Knowledge production and dissemination have long been of interest to scholars from various disciplinary backgrounds. Within the field of translation studies, the role of translation in the production, transmission, and transformation of knowledge has been the focus of recent investigations by a number of research groups, including, but not limited to, the organizers of the ‘Circulation of Academic Thought’ Conference held in the University of Graz in 2015 and the research team based at the University of Manchester undertaking the UK’s AHRC-funded ‘Genealogies of Knowledge’ Research Project 2016. The efforts of such groups have initiated an exchange of ideas regarding translation as a form of knowledge-making and the cross-cultural circulation of academic thought. At present, more empirical research is needed to further our understanding of the complex ways in which translation has engaged with the production, evolution, and circulation of knowledge.

This three-day ARTIS training event provides a forum in which established and emerging scholars share their experience in investigating the role of translation in generating and transforming knowledge.

Lecturers and workshop leaders:

  • Professor Luis Pérez-González (University of Manchester, UK)
  • Professor Judy Wakabayashi (Kent State University, USA)
  • Professor Ji-Hae Kang (Ajou University, South Korea)
  • Dr Karen Bennett (Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Portugal)
