  1. Paul Peranteau, Interpreting: Getting Started in Interpreting Research

Message 1: Interpreting: Getting Started in Interpreting Research

Date: Fri, 08 Feb 2002 14:40:36 -0500
From: Paul Peranteau <>
Subject: Interpreting: Getting Started in Interpreting Research

John Benjamins Publishing presents a new work in Interpreting:

Getting Started in Interpreting Research. Methodological reflections, 
personal accounts and advice for beginners
Daniel Gile, Helle V. Dam, Friedel Dubslaff, Bodil Martinsen
and Anne Schjoldager (eds.)
Universit� Lumi�re Lyon 2/Aarhus School of Business

What sets this collection apart in the literature is its direct,
personal style. Experienced supervisors as well as younger scholars
speak to beginning researchers in interpreting, and more generally in
Translation Studies. 
The contributors, who are very familiar with the difficulties
beginners experience, focus on their needs and anticipate their
questions. They reflect, analyze and advise, with illustrations from
their own experience. Issues discussed include topic selection,
project planning, time management, 'doctoral stress', the use of the
literature, critical reading and book reviews, supervisor-supervisee
relations, institutional frameworks for research training, issues in
empirical research, theoretical analysis, and the role of small
projects. Readers will thus find answers to many personal,
institutional and methodological questions, which are common to
beginners in many disciplines and in many paradigms.
