Translation as collaboration symposium

Call for papers: Translation as collaboration:
a 1-day symposium 18 June 2015

18 June 2015, 9.00am – 5.00pm

Fyvie Hall, 309 Regent Street, London W1B 2HW


This free symposium, organized by the newly formed Westminster Translaborate group, is an opportunity for colleagues across disciplines, including, but not limited to, translation, literary and cultural studies, legal studies, medicine and life-sciences, education and professional development, leadership and management, and action and change research to explore the strengths and weaknesses of emerging translational paradigms, particularly in current academic discourses, to test and assess their premises and (trans-) disciplinary implications, and to forge greater connections for further research projects around ‘translaboration’ as a category of analysis in a variety of disciplines. Please note that the symposium is not limited to translation in its linguistic sense. We particularly welcome papers from colleagues in educational and related research that explores how ideas move and are ‘translated’ from theory/research into practice or between different domains of knowledge. Hence the scope of the symposium is very broad. Deadline for proposals is 18 February 2015.

The call is attached here, and there is a web link here:

We will have a web site for the Translaborate group up and running shortly.

For more information about the group and the symposium and if you would like to discuss an initial proposal, please contact Steven Cranfield, Department of Leadership and Professional Development, at  or call on 020 7915 5443.
