University of Leuven, campus Antwerp, Belgium

29th Research Summer School
28 Aug – 8 Sep 2017

CETRA Chair Professor:
LEO TAK-HUNG CHAN
Lingnan University, Hong Kong

In 1989 José Lambert created a special research program in Translation Studies at the University of Leuven in order to promote research training in the study of translational phenomena and to stimulate high-level research into the cultural functions of translation. Since then, this unique program has attracted talented PhD students, postdocs and young scholars who spend two weeks of research under the supervision of a team of prominent scholars, and under the supervision of the Chair Professor, an annually appointed expert in the field of Translation Studies. From 1989 on, the program has hosted participants from Austria to Australia, from Brazil to Burundi, and from China to the Czech Republic. As an illustration of the multi-campus model of CETRA, the 2016 edition of the Summer School will be organized at the Antwerp campus of the KU Leuven, in the city center of Antwerp.
