[CFP] The Łódź-ZHAW Duo Colloquium on Translation and Meaning

The Łódź-ZHAW Duo Colloquium on Translation and Meaning is a successor to the internationally acclaimed event with the same concept, organised in Maastricht and Łódź from 1990 to 2015.

The ZHAW session takes place from 2 to 4 September 2021 in Winterthur and approaches applied aspects of the theme Contextuality in Translation and Interpreting. The session held online in Łódź from 3 to 5 December 2020 focused on theoretical aspects (see http://www.duo.uni.lodz.pl/). We are planning to stage a full on-site session in Winterthur. 

The ZHAW session of the Łódź-ZHAW Duo Colloquium has an applied orientation to this year’s central theme Contextuality in Translation and Interpreting
