DOTTSS Translation Studies Doctoral and Teacher Training Summer School
Tampere, Finland, 4 – 15 June 2018
Guest Professor 2018: Prof. Roberto A. Valdeón (University of Oviedo)
The DOTTSS Translation Studies Doctoral and Teacher Training Summer School is a joint initiative by 5 different universities (University of Ljubljana, Slovenia; Boğaziçi University, Turkey; University of Turku and University of Tampere, Finland; University of Granada, Spain). It focuses, in particular, on contemporary research into translation from a sociological and historical perspective, and on providing training for teachers at MA level.
Since 2012, the summer school has hosted doctoral students of TS and teachers of translators and interpreters from all around the world. The 7th summer school will take place in Tampere, Finland.
The University of Tampere has a prominent translator and interpreter training programme and a strong tradition in translation research, particularly sociological approaches to translation.
The rise of dedicated MA and PhD programmes across Europe and globally indicate that there is a growing need to provide high-level doctoral training for PhD students, and that there is also a pressing need to continuously provide teacher training to the existing and future translation teachers in order to keep them up to date with the latest developments in the field. The DOTTSS Translation Studies Doctoral and Teacher Training Summer School responds to these needs by offering
1) an up-to-date account of contemporary research with emphasis on sociological and historical perspectives, and
2) a special module on translator training pedagogy.
