Call for participants: Summer School in Translation History

University of Vienna. 18-25 Sept 2019

The Summer School is organized by the Centre for Translation Studies and is now in its 3rd year. This year’s theme is: “Perspectives, Approaches and Applications”.

Centre for Translation Studies in Vienna is proud to announce the third instalment of the international summer school on translation and interpreting history! Just like in the first two years (2017 and 2018), we have invited renowned translation scholars to share their expertise on central issues of translation and interpreting historiography. This year’s event aims to provide young researchers with basic knowledge about various perspectives on and approaches to translation and interpreting history as well as with hands-on experience, such as analysing historical documents and researching in archives. Moreover, the participants are going to present their own projects and discuss them in light of the subjects addressed in the summer school.

We invite all PhD students and young researchers working on projects in Translation and Interpreting History to apply for this year’s summer schools.
