The Asia-Pacific Forum on Translation and Intercultural Studies aims to gather scholars in these fields to present their research and exchange perspectives on current trends across disciplines. The goal is to create a third space other than “pure” translation studies and sociological studies by inviting scholars from various academic and cultural backgrounds to discuss translational activities with different approaches and academic narratives, in the hope that these discussions will inspire further interdisciplinary studies in the Asia-Pacific region as well as other parts of the world and help foreground the social functions of translation and translation studies.
