Translation Studies

Members of the Translation Studies Group cover a broad spectrum of research, ranging from the history of translation, technical, literary and sociolinguistic aspects of translation to dubbing and subtitling. The group will shortly be joined by a new member of staff whose research interest lies in the field of interpreting. Since many postgraduates choose to work on translation applied to particular contexts and/or languages they usually have an additional supervisor who specialises in a particular language and/or literary or cultural studies.
