This conference aims to serve as a platform from which to visualize, reflect on and report censorial (or self-censorial) behaviours that, regardless of whether they arise within a democratic state or not, continue to happen in the 21st century in the field of translation.

In line with the fundamental axis of MUTE Project, the study of censorship behaviours that can be explained on account of gender will be a priority.
