The Centre for Translation and Interpreting provides a vibrant environment for both disciplinary and interdisciplinary scholarship. Recognised as a centre of excellence for research into the languages, literatures, histories, linguistics, visual cultures, and cultural identities of Europe and beyond, the Centre is founded on a dynamic and forward-looking research ethos. Interpreting is a field of research that is expanding dynamically. We welcome innovative research proposals that interrogate – through either practice- or research-led projects – interpreting in a variety of areas and modes, for example: the role of the interpreter in the complex network of requirements, expectations, and perceptions; interpreter training; interpreting principles and practices; interpreting ethics; legal and social contexts for interpreting; cognitive studies of interpreting, especially with eye-tracking technology; community interpreting; court interpreting; sign language interpreting; interpreting as a profession; interpreting industry.
