Course content

Interpreting is part of the Modern Languages research cluster, which provides a vibrant environment for both disciplinary and interdisciplinary scholarship. Recognised as a centre of excellence for research into the languages, literatures, histories, linguistics, visual cultures, and cultural identities of Europe and beyond, the cluster is founded on a dynamic and forward-looking research ethos. Interpreting is a new field of research that is expanding dynamically. We welcome innovative research proposals investigating the role of the interpreter in the complex network of requirements, expectations, and perceptions; interpreter training; interpreting as a profession; community interpreting; court interpreting; and sign language interpreting.
