Edinburgh Interpreting Research Summer School

The Edinburgh Interpreting Research Summer School (EIRSS) offers intensive research training for existing and future scholars in any field of interpreting.

Date: 24th - 28th June 2013

Fees: £650. Lunch and two coffee/tea breaks every day are included.

We are offering an early bird discount of £50 for those who register and pay before 15th March 2013.

Attendees will have the opportunity to network with world-renowned researchers in the field of Interpreting as well as the chance to showcase their individual projects and receive feedback from the expert staff of the Department of Languages and Intercultural Studies (LINCS), which has been offering courses in Translation and Interpreting since 1970 and has an "internationally excellent and world-leading" research track-record, as attested by the last national (UK) Research Assessment Exercise (RAE 2008).

Who should attend?

This course will be relevant to researchers interested in Conference Interpreting (CI) and Public Service Interpreting (PSI) alike, for both spoken and signed languages. It will focus on research design and methods and it will include lectures on the state of the art in CI and PSI research, seminars, case studies and a round-table discussion. Suggested reading lists for personal study will be provided.

EIRSS is open to those who are about to embark on a PhD, those in the first stages of doctoral study and those considering a change of direction in their professional career or academic trajectory. Applicants will be expected to hold a postgraduate qualification in a relevant subject or appropriate professional experience and should be proficient in English.
