Conference Theme: “From the Local to the Global and Back. Translation as a Construction of Plural and Dialogic Identities of East Asia


This Conference on East Asian Translation Studies (EATS) aims to provide a platform for translators and researchers working in the East Asian context (China, Korea and Japan in particular) to exchange ideas on issues related to translation. The first East Asian Translation Studies Conference was held at the University of East Anglia, UK, on 19-20 June 2014, which was successfully concluded with fruitful discussions on history, practice, and theory of translation, as well as new trends in the field. The second conference held at Meiji University in Japan on July 9-10, 2016 was a continuation of those dialogues, bringing the focus on the concept and role of “East Asia” and its influence on translation studies (TS).

The Third Conference will be held at Ca’ Foscari University of Venice on June 28-29, 2019.
