FIRE-TI 2022

Eigentlich hätte die internationale Konferenz FIRE-TI 2022 (Field Research on Translation and Interpreting) vom 17. bis 19. Februar 2022 vor Ort in Wien stattfinden sollen, nachdem sie bereits um ein Jahr verschoben worden war. Wegen der zurzeit vierstelligen Omikron-Inzidenzen wurde sie jedoch notgedrungen ins Netz verlagert. Auf Teilnahmegebühren wird deshalb verzichtet.

Ausgerichtet wird die Veranstaltung vom Zentrum für Translationswissenschaft der Universität Wien mit Unterstützung der CIUTI (Conférence internationale permanente d’instituts universitaires de traducteurs et interprètes).

Die Konferenz will Forscher zusammenzubringen, die die Praktiken und Prozesse des Übersetzens und Dolmetschens aus einem interdisziplinären Ansatz heraus untersuchen, also zum Beispiel aus soziologischer, kognitiver, anthropologischer oder ergonomischer Perspektive.

Auf dem Programm stehen in drei Tagen mehr als 50 Präsentationen, die kurz und knackig in jeweils einer halben Stunde einen Aspekt aus dem weiten Feld der Translationswissenschaft abhandeln. Wegen der Menge der Beiträge laufen meist drei Präsentationen parallel, sodass interessierte Zuschauer die Qual der Wahl haben.

Die Zusammenfassungen der Vorträge wurden als Book of Abstracts bereits vorab veröffentlicht.

Wer die Konferenz online verfolgen möchte, muss sich über die Website bis zum 4. Februar anmelden.

Mehr als 50 Vorträge à 30 Minuten
