International Conference on Language, Literature & Culture

“Mapping Cultural Identities: Translations and Intersections”

Bucharest, Romania
25-26 May 2018

Call for papers
This two-day International Conference brings together scholars and graduates researching the intersections of cultural studies, imagology and translations, with a focus on cultural images constructions, various ways of approaching the concept of ethnicity and translation practices in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere of “Dimitrie Cantemir” Christian University in Bucharest.
In the context of globalization, the issue of cultural identity has aroused increasing attention. Cultural Translation, as means of cultural (de)construction supports the cultural differences and enriches both cultural identities. We encourage the cultural identity approach to translation, in expectation of treating ethnic cultural identity construction from a wider perspective, measuring the literary reception, investigating different layers of cultural identities and revealing both self-images and the images of the Other.

A 200-word abstract and 5 keywords for a 20-minute paper should be submitted as an email attachment to LLC2018conference@gmail.com. In your email, please include your name, affiliation, email address, phone number, title of the paper, abstract, 5 keywords and a brief bio data.
