I-  Call for papers:

When we address translation, we refer to cognition, thoughts, memory, mental representations, schemas of thought, language, attention, motivation, perception, intellectual abilities…

We know that translation is both a cognitive and a linguistic process and that linguistic competence is an indispensable but not sufficient element to ensure the quality of translations. As a result, a reflection on the mental processes of meaning-making is fundamental to best accomplish the translational task.

Thus, the theme of this conference wants to question the contribution that the cognitive approach can give to research in translation. It is inspired by the following theses:

§ Current applications of the Think-Aloud Protocol (TAP), as well as other strategies of mental representation, in the development of translators’ skills.

§ Exploit metacognitive processes as resources for the development of translator competence.

§ Cognize and invest the cognitive operations involved in the transition from reformulation to translation.
§ Exploit cognitive linguistics theories in translation teaching and learning.
§ Theories of conceptual metaphor and metonymy as supports for the analysis of translation.
§ To explore and focus on theories such as Conceptual Blending, to compare source texts and target texts.

§ Construct critical models of translation based on cognitive approaches.
