The World of Subtitling Today




Speaker: Jorge Díaz Cintas, University College London

Today's prevalence of audiovisual materials in communication exchanges has made of subtitling a daily experience for many of us and a well-established and prominent area of academic research. This talk aims at taking stock of the most significant milestones that have marked the evolution of subtitling to date, whilst also delving into a prospective discussion of potential changes.

Jorge Díaz Cintas is the Director of the Centre for Translation Studies (CenTraS) at University College London. He is the author of numerous articles, special issues and books on audiovisual translation. He was the president of the European Association for Studies in Screen Translation from 2002 until 2010 as is now one of its directors. Since 2010, he has been the Chief Editor of the Peter Lang series New Trends in Translation Studies. He is a member of the international research group TransMedia and an expert board member of the EU initiative LIND-Web.
