CMCI lecturer Dr Hye-Kyung Lee gave a keynote speech at the ARTIS Conference: Advancing Research in Translation & Interpreting Studies held at University College, London. The conference focused on multidimensional methodologies for collaboration and networking in translation research. Her presentation “Locating fan translators and their work” discussed the broader context of fan translation and its internal dynamics, and implications for translation researchers.
Dr Lee has a special research interest in “scanlation” and fandom as well as cultural policy, and says that networked translation is an emerging, hot topic for translation studies.
