Research Methods in Translation and Interpreting Studies - TRAN908

In this unit students will engage critically with a range of approaches to translation and interpreting as evident in theories in these two fields. Students will be given an overview of the dominant directions in thinking about translation and interpreting from the classical era to the contemporary era. The unit will build on the basic introduction to theoretical concepts in TRAN870 and develop a deeper understanding of the theoretical underpinnings of the field of Translation and Interpreting Studies. Although the emphasis will be on guiding students to an understanding of the relevance of theoretical developments to the practice of translation and interpreting, This is necessary in order to creatively resolve complex problems arising in practice. In this unit, students will deepen their knowledge and understanding of the important theoretical movements of the past century.
