ARTIS, or Advancing Research in Translation and Interpreting Studies, is a research training initiative in the broad area of translation and interpreting studies. The training we offer is designed to help researchers to improve their research skills and methods, to set up and manage research projects effectively, and to negotiate and apply theoretical models. In providing training along these lines ARTIS seeks to contribute to the enhancement of translation and interpreting research quality in general.
ARTIS builds on the long and successful history of the Translation Research Summer School, which was organised by the University of Manchester, University College London (UCL), the University of Edinburgh and Hong Kong Baptist University. It is run by staff from these same universities but also involves experienced colleagues from the Universities of Nottingham and Bristol and a large international panel of Associates with a wide array of research specialisms. ARTIS is a flexible platform that can collaborate to deliver short, intensive training in a variety of places, responding to local needs. It is administered by the University of Manchester’s Centre for Translation and Intercultural Studies.
ARTIS issues two calls for proposals per year, with deadlines in January and July.
For the general criteria for applications, information about how to apply and details of the contribution made by ARTIS (which is an in-kind, rather than a financial contribution), please see the full Call for Proposals at https://artisinitiative.org/about-us/call-for-proposals/
