Call For Contributions To The Following Panel At The 2019 EST Conference:
Exploring The Implications Of Complexity Thinking For Translation Studies

Reine Meylaerts and Kobus Marais

This panel wants to explore the potential of complexity theory for translation studies. It invites for theoretical, methodological contributions or case studies. Possible topics can include but are not limited to:
• How do nonlinearity and emergence challenge translation studies to rethink its conceptualization of the relationships between structure and agency, between habitus and norms?
• How do nonlinearity and emergence challenge translation studies to rethink its conceptualization of the relationships between cause and effect?
• How does complexity thinking challenge Translation Studies’ view on translators and interpreters as agents of change? On change and evolution in general?
• How does complexity thinking challenge traditional binary oppositions, which have structured Western thinking: source/target, original/translation, translation/non-translation, local/global, monolingual/multilingual, universal/particular?
• How does complexity thinking relate to Actor-Network-Theory? To Descriptive Translation Studies? To other paradigms?
• How does complexity thinking relate to thinking about space and time in translation studies?
• What are the implications of complexity thinking for translator training and translator practice?
