TaCo 2020

Taboo in Language, Culture and Communication
2020 Conference

September 30th – October 2nd, 2020 – University of Rome Tor Vergata, Italy

The Taboo Conference series (TaCo) is an interdisciplinary conference aimed at bringing together scholars of various aspects of taboo in a variety of academic fields. The project was originated at the Department of Interpretation and Translation of the University of Bologna, Italy, where the first edition was held in 2012. The following editions were held every two years in Durham (UK), Barcelona (Spain) and Bertinoro (Italy). For its fifth installment the conference will be held in Rome. We hope you’ll be able to join us later in the year to discuss all the multifaceted ramifications of taboo in language, culture and communication.

For the Organizing Committee,
Daniela Guardamagna
