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.
