Supported by the University Graduate College and the School of European Languages, Politics and Translation, organized in collaboration with the School of Welsh.

‘The translator’ lies at the heart of much research in translation studies and other disciplines and yet closer inspection reveals ‘the translator’ to be an intriguingly nebulous concept. This conference invites postgraduate researchers from arts and humanities, social sciences and other fields to revisit and advance work on the figure of the translator and the criteria that contribute to our understanding of the protean persona, focusing on such criteria as competence, credentials and creativity.

Keynote speaker: Professor Meifang Zhangs (University of Macau)
