Kensington Campus, UNSW
The 10th Asia-Pacific Forum on Translation and Intercultural Studies aims to gather scholars, educators and practitioners in the fields of translation, interpreting and intercultural studies to exchange perspectives on new trends across disciplines. Translation and interpreting studies is developing vigorously and new approaches and methodologies are emerging. The interrelations between translation and literature have the potential to inspire interdisciplinary studies including intercultural studies, comparative literature studies and globalization studies. Besides, this new era of globalization has witnessed the burgeoning translation and interpreting technology and services in various fields: business and commerce, medicine, law, community services and etc. It is our hope that this forum will provide a platform for dialogues and discussions that will facilitate further interdisciplinary studies in the Asia-Pacific region and beyond.
