Third IATIS Bulletin Prize Winner

As part of our partnership with Routledge, IATIS is now holding regular prize draws for members who submit news items for inclusion in the IATIS Bulletin.

The draws coincide with the publication of every second Bulletin (roughly once every six weeks), with a randomly-selected contributor winning a book or eBook up to the value of £50 from the Routledge website.

The winner of our third prize was Klaus Mundt from the University of Nottingham. He selected Translation and Emotion: A Psychological Perspective by Séverine Hubscher-Davidson.

The book applies the scientific study of emotion to the study of translation and translators in order to shed light on how emotions can impact decision-making and problem-solving when translating. Klaus explained his reasons for selecting this text as follows:

My teaching and my research on translator training are rooted in Mediated Learning Experience and thus draw on different areas of psychology. I consider the affective environment in which we learn and work as a crucial factor in the way we approach texts and translate them, especially if the texts we translate are themselves emotionally loaded. That is why I chose 'Translation and Emotion: A Psychological Perspective', which presents empirical data in relation to phenomena that I have so far only been able to observe anecdotally.

To be in with a chance of winning the next prize draw, send your news items to Joseph Lambert (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).
