Interpretation Australia welcomes contributions to its flagship magazine, Interpreting Australia, from members and non-members.
The theme for the next issue (November 2012) will be Future Challenge, to tie in with the IA conference in Melbourne in November.
This issue will focus on the theme of the 2012 IA conference: ‘Future Challenge’. What challenges do interpreters face in the future? Are traditional formats of interpretation still relevant? Will key interpretive concepts, such as themes and stories, work in contexts where the user drives the interpretive experience? What are the challenges of new media? What are the challenges of retaining the ‘old’? Where is interpretation situated in national and international economic contexts?
If you are interested in writing an article, please contact us first. Each issue usually focuses on a particular theme. It helps with our planning if we know beforehand that you intend writing an article.
The magazine is produced twice a year, and submissions are due by 23 March or 21 September.
