ARTIS, or Advancing Research in Translation and Interpreting Studies, is a new research training initiative in the broad area of translation and interpreting studies. The training offered 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), 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 will issue two calls for proposals per year, with deadlines of 15 January and 15 June. To launch the initiative in 2014, applications are being invited, exceptionally, for a 15 September deadline.
ARTIS expects to be able to collaborate in up to four research-training initiatives per year. Applications are now invited for the September 2014 deadline, to be submitted on the application form provided. The ARTIS Steering Board will evaluate all applications to select those which best fit the ARTIS objectives.
