Description

Workshop Leaders:

What does it mean today to be a member of an audience? How do we, as 21st-century viewers and readers make sense of translated texts? Do existing theories of convergence culture and audience participation account for user-generated practices of subtitling, translation and adaptation? The fifth edition of Migrating Texts will address these questions during a one-day workshop featuring short presentations from a mixture of academic and industry speakers. Participants will have the opportunity to explore innovative research methods in the study of audiences of translated texts to inform their own projects. 
Our workshops will consist of a morning and an afternoon session. Each session will feature short presentations from a mixture of academic and industry speakers, hands-on activities and Q&A time with participants. In this free event aimed at postgraduates and ECRs, we will be investigating what it means to be a member of an audience today.
