Course content

The Centre for Translation and Interpreting 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 Centre is founded on a dynamic and forward-looking research ethos. Interpreting is a field of research that is expanding dynamically. We welcome innovative research proposals that interrogate – through either practice- or research-led projects – interpreting in a variety of areas and modes, for example:

  • the role of the interpreter in the complex network of requirements, expectations, and perceptions
  • interpreter training
  • interpreting principles and practices
  • interpreting ethics
  • legal and social contexts for interpreting
  • cognitive studies of interpreting, especially with eye-tracking technology
  • community interpreting
  • court interpreting
  • sign language interpreting
  • interpreting as a profession
  • interpreting industry
