Conference - Words Laying Down the Law: Translating Arabic Legal Discourse

October 7-8, 2019
London

Institute for the Study of Muslim Civilisations

What is the impact of translation on the diffusion of legal concepts between domains of discourse? Does the translation of legal terminology modify the perception of the corresponding legal phenomena in observable and applied ways? How are words translated from legal discourse into everyday discourse, and does translation happen in the other direction?


Keynote Speakers:

Prof Myriam Salama-Carr, University of Manchester
Prof Baudouin Dupret, Sciences Po Bordeaux
Prof Roberta Aluffi, University of Turin
Dr Neveen Al Saeed, Ain Shams University, Cairo
