|This conference on translation and space, organized by the Department of Translation at CUHK, follows on the success of our 2016 conference “Translation and Time: Exploring the Temporal Dimension of Cross-cultural Transfer.” For this conference we would like to concentrate on two aspects of the spatial dimension of translation, one real, the other metaphorical. For the real, we invite papers that consider translation and/in colonial spaces or translation and migrant spaces. For the metaphorical, we are interested in translation theorized as liminal activity. The aims of this conference, then, are twofold. First, to reflect upon the way in which considerations of space, especially liminal ones such as the threshold, may provide new insights and research directions for translation and interpreting studies. Second, to reflect upon the ways in which spatial constraints impinge upon or shape the translation process, and how translation may work to re-shape cultural spaces.
