No doubt: Translation history is gaining more and more academic momentum and attracting increasing attention from an ever growing interdisciplinary community of scholars. This why we are glad and proud to announce the fourth summer school on translation and interpreting history at the Centre for Translation Studies in Vienna. We are inviting researchers from all disciplines interested in the connection between translation and history to participate. Just like in the first three years (2017, 2018, and 2019), we have invited renowned scholars to share their expertise on doing translation and interpreting history. In 2020, young researchers will be provided with basic knowledge about various perspectives on and approaches to translation and interpreting history and with hands-on experience, such as analysing historical documents and researching in archives. Moreover, the participants will have the opportunity for one-on-one tutorials with our guest lecturers as well as for presenting and discussing their own research projects. What are you waiting for? Join the summer school!
Confirmed guest lecturers are:
Theo Hermans (London)
Christopher Rundle (Bologna)
Irene Weber-Henking (Lausanne)
Application: until April 5 2020
Applications from all countries and different disciplines are welcome. Applicants should have a demonstrable interest in translation (or interpreting) historical issues and the contents of the summer school.
