Philosophy in/on translation (Online Symposium)


9-10 September 2021

There is increasing interest in the links between philosophy and translation. What sort of problems arise when translating philosophy from one language to another? What have philosophers said about translation? What are they saying about it today? How can translation scholars join the debate? Can there be a philosophy of translation? What is the state of the untranslatability debate? 

We invite abstracts for presentations on any topic about philosophy in/on translation. 

For further information, please visit our website. 

The symposium is organised by Alice Leal (University of Vienna, Austria) and Philip Wilson (University of East Anglia, UK). If you have any queries, please write to

The deadline for abstracts is Friday 12 March 2021. Only registered participants will be granted access to the symposium. Register here by Friday 30 April 2021.
