AHRC’s Translating Cultures Theme

Researching Multilingually responds to the AHRC’s highlight notice within the Translating Cultures theme. Our aim is to develop better understandings of and insights into how researchers who are researching in more than one language negotiate and interpret linguistic and cultural meaning in their data—whether dialogic, observational, textual, or mediated. The highlight notice provides us with the opportunity to build cross-disciplinary and cross-domain research capacity by foregrounding this under-investigated epistemological and methodological domain. Although rooted in intercultural communication, linguistics, and interpretation and translation, our research will inform researcher practice across multiple disciplines in contexts wherever more than one language is involved in research design, instruments, data collection and generation, interpretation and translation, and writing up of research.
