Title: Getting Started in Interpreting Research. Methodological reflections, personal accounts and advice for beginners.
Edited By: Helle V Dam
Daniel Gile
Friedel Dubslaff
Bodil Martinsen
Anne Schjoldager
Series Title: Benjamins Translation Library, 33
Description:

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.
