Abstract: Delivered in independent presentations by the four chief organisers of the Duo Colloquium, this four-part keynote paper uses the overall theme of this conference series (viz. translation and meaning) as a prism to provide a commentary on the conceptual and empirical development of translation studies during the past three decades. The Duo Colloquium has been a regular forum for translation scholars since 1990 and has contributed significantly to the development of the (inter)discipline; its tangible results are a total of 14 volumes of proceedings. Since the first conference, the focus of translation studies has evolved, translation practices have changed considerably and the legacy of the discipline has multiplied. The presentation will move simultaneously along two axes: from the past through the present into the future, and from translation as a profession to translation in academia and beyond. It is hoped that this broad and ambitious scope will help if not answer, then at least verbalise some major questions regarding translation in contemporary society and the status of translation studies in academia.
