Description:
Expression of interest Doctoral Summer School on Process and Product Methodologies in Translation and Interpreting Studies

The third edition of the Translation [and Interpreting] in Transition Conference (TT3, http://www.eqtis.ugent.be/tt3/index.htm) will take place at Ghent University, Belgium, on July 13-14, 2017. This conference aims to bring together international researchers with a background in translation and interpreting research, and focuses on recent technological and methodological changes in both research fields.

Given sufficient interest, the TT3 conference will be preceded by a Doctoral Summer School on Process and Product Methodologies in Translation and Interpreting Studies (PPMTIS). The summer school would take place from 10 to 12 July, and feature international experts in translation and interpreting research. The goal is to familiarize PhD students with new process and product methodologies in TIS, for them to reflect on their application in their own research and, through the conference following the summer school, to reflect on the theoretical underpinnings of empirical research in translation and interpreting. The course will be a combination of theoretical and hands-on sessions, and will cover the research process from experiment and corpus design to statistical analysis. We are aiming to organize the PPMTIS Doctoral Summer School as a Ghent University Doctoral Schools specialist course, with additional space for non-Ghent University students.
