Programme Closing Date: 7 February 2013
This is a multi-faceted inter-discipline where different fields, like linguistics, literary and cultural studies, interact and spark ideas from each other.Â Key interestsÂ for our community of staff and student researchers are: Literary translation; Ideological and socio-political aspects of translation and interpreting (including culture, society and identity); Translating and interpreting processes; and Translator and interpreter training. Our students and researchers are based in the School of Modern Languages.
Our postgraduate students benefit from excellent facilities: three state-of-the-art interpreting suitesÂ for simultaneous interpreting training; language labs installed with the latest translation and subtitling software; our Language Resource Centre which houses specialist translating and interpreting resources on dedicated PCs, and provides computing, television and DVD resources in over 50 languages. We also provide dedicated facilities for our postgraduate students such as the postgraduate office, common room and study room with networked PCs.
