Dr Stefan Baumgarten works as a Lecturer in German and Translation Studies at Bangor University in North Wales, UK. His research interests include the relationship between translation studies and critical theory, and the role of translation as an ideological practice, specifically as shaped through processes of globalization and the resulting impact on political and philosophical discourse. His research stands in close connection to globalised political discourse as expressed in the rise of activist, post-anarchist and pro-democratic movements that challenge the dominant and hegemonic orthodoxy of neoliberal regimes.Dr Chantal Gagnon is Assistant Professor at Université de Montréal in Québec, Canada, where she teaches business and economic translation at the undergraduate and postgraduate level. She has published articles on political speeches, news translation and revision in publications such as Target, Meta, and Across. She particularly specialises in translation shifts in Canadian political speeches and also investigates ideological issues in institutional translation. Some of her recent research deals with financial discourse in translation, using a critical discourse analysis perspective based on a French-Canadian and English-Canadian news translation corpus.
