After the success of the 1st edition,
The II International Conference on Translation, Ideology and Gender aims to continue with the fruitful discussions that emerged in
the first encounter. The conference invites proposals addressing issues related to the representation of gender in translated discourses and the ideological implications that the shifts of meaning may bear on female image construction. In addition, in line with its subtitle “In Sickness and in Health”, particular attention will be paid to research promoting debate around the representation of gender in the health sciences. The conference stems from the Ministry funded research project TRACEgen (TRADUCCIÓN Y CENSURA EN LA REPRESENTACIÓN DEL GENERO: FFI2012- 39012-C04-04).
The conference will provide an international forum for sharing information and for presenting the latest research findings. The program will feature international research and key note speakers in the field. The aim is to build on the research that has been developed in the last twenty-five years and to broaden its perspectives by considering gender representation filtered by power and ideology in translated text.
