Centre for Translation and Interpreting Studies


We organise regular research seminars and conferences and host visiting speakers. In the past, the Centre has played host to such events as the AHRC-funded Translating Cultures Network Key Cultural Texts in Translation, and from November 2012 to July 2013 the Centre collaborated with the Intercultural Studies Group, Universitat Rovira i Virgili (Tarragona, Spain) and the European Society for Translation Studies on a research project on translation in language learning, commissioned by the Directorate General for Translation of the European Union.
