Aims and Objectives:
The Conference aims to provide a platform for exchanging fresh international perspectives on both theoretical and empirical language issues related to the translation of Asian and Western texts. It also encourages discussions on the correlations between translation and daily life topics such as globalization. We aim to establish links between academics, researchers, stakeholders and policymakers in hopes of fostering in-depth research in the fields of cultural and creative arts as well as the teaching and learning of translation.
The Conference will address a wide range of topics including, but not limited to, the reception of Western texts in China, Asian texts in the West, critical studies of translation, translation in the age of globalization, teaching and learning, and film adaptation.
As Asia’s most dynamic melting pot, Hong Kong is the ideal meeting place for scholars and professionals engrossed in cross-cultural studies. In a place where an Indian tailor enjoys Chinese dim sum alongside a Western financier, there is never a lack of intercultural communication. We hope to continue that diverse dialogue through this conference. Come join us in Asia’s World City.
