  1. Sherry Mou, DePauw University
    This paper will look into how cultures are translated through different media, using Romance of the Three Kingdoms and the Game of Thrones TV series as examples.
  2. Vanesa Cañete-Jurado, University of Nevada, Las Vegas
    This paper explores the translation of transmedia narratives and intermediality in multilingual and multicultural contexts in an attempt to contextualize the complex network of linguistic, psycholinguistic, sociolinguistic and sociocultural factors that may play a dominant role during the translation process.
  3. Lucia Aranda, University of Hawaii, Manoa
    This paper focuses on the strategies used by translators of children’s literature, from the early translations of Aesop’s fables, to the Disneyfication of this literature, and the more recent foreignizing strategies which attempt to counter manipulation, censorship, and colonialism.
