The PhD course in translation process research is recommended for PhD students engaged not only in projects in translation studies but more generally for PhD students wishing to know about empirical research methodology, experimental design, and data analysis, especially of behavioural data from eyetracking and keylogging. The overall purpose of the course is to give an overview of, as well hands-on introduction to, all of these areas.
The method of instruction will include teacher presentations, class discussion of morning lectures and of the course reading. There will also be an opportunity to have a personal one-on-one tutorial with one of the instructors about your own project.
Participants must have at least started their PhD project and reflected on its empirical theme, theory and level of analysis. Number of participants: min. 10 – max. 20. The course is also open to university researchers.
