In response to the announcement of the 2009 MLA Annual Convention theme, exploring translation," this Special Session will be convened around the topic "Translational Medicine."
The phrase "translational medicine" is typically applied to lab-bench-to-bedside applications of medical science into clinical settings and to the dissemination of that research. This panel is open to scholars exploring the discourses of that “translation” process as well as to scholars who are exploring other aspects of the concept of medical translation, including: medical technical writing; biomedical journalism; medical humanities (representations of the body, sexuality, disability, or disease in literature and culture); translations from one language to another of important medical texts; and medical belles lettres (creative writing by physicians and nurses). Presenters must be members of the MLA at the time of the paper's acceptance for the panel. Submit abstracts by 9 Mar. 2009.
MLA Call for Submissions: Medical “translation” in all senses: Bench-to-bedside research and dissemination; medical technical writing; biomedical journalism; medical humanities; medical belles lettres (writing by physicians and nurses).
