CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: Comics Translation School

We welcome applications for the Comics Translation School, taking place at the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, NOVA University of Lisbon, Portugal, between 7 and 9 April 2022. This School is organized by the COST Action iCOn-MICs – Investigation on Comics and Graphic novels in the Iberian Cultural Area (CA19119).

The iCOn-MICs Action is an international network of researchers, professionals, and end-users of comics from the Iberian Cultural Area (Spain, Portugal, and Latin America), aiming to advance scholarship on the study of Iberian comics and graphic novels, promote authors and disseminating works, facilitating access to scholarly works, and improve practices in comics, as well as their use in educational contexts.

The Comics Translation School is a three-day training event with lectures, roundtables and an applied translation workshop, which will gather comics translation scholars and professionals, artists and editors, from the Iberian Peninsula and Latin America, to discuss the challenges of translation in graphic narratives for those who wish to specialize in this field.

The call is open for both students and professionals with general language training, an academic or professional background in translation or translation theory, and affiliation with a university or other public or private organizations. The event’s lingua francas will be English, Spanish and Portuguese and applicants are required to be proficient in translation in either Spanish↔French, Portuguese↔French, Spanish↔English, or Portuguese↔English.

Candidates should submit their CV (4 pages maximum) and a short bibliographical note to iconmicstranslation@gmail.com. iCOn-MICS will provide financial support covering for travel and accommodation expenses, paid as reimbursements, to a limited number of accepted applicants. Please indicate in your bibliographical note if you require funding and why. Selection will be based on the candidates’ CV and COST’s inclusivity rules.
Applications must be submitted by 15 March 2022.
