Principal Investigator: Professor Alison Phipps at University of Glasgow
We are delighted to announce this funding award from the Translating Cultures Programme of the Arts and Humanities Research Council as one of its three large grants. This international project drawing on the ground work of the Researching Multilingually team, has two overarching aims:
1) to research interpreting, translation and multilingual practices in challenging contexts, and,
2) while doing so, to evaluate appropriate research methods (traditional and arts based) and develop theoretical approaches for this type of academic exploration.
The international team of researchers, with their different disciplinary backgrounds, research experiences, language and performance skills, will conduct international comparative research on translation and interpretation at different kinds of border in order to develop theory, ethical research practices and research methodologies in relation to multilingual research. The project runs for 3 years, starting 1st April, 2014.
