How come?

We, the organizers of the Vienna summer school on translation history, are all at very different stages in our academic careers. But there was one thing, we were all missing: a forum in which we could share our thoughts on translation history, discuss the challenges we face not only in our methodological choice and theoretical thoughts, but also in our hands-on research. We wanted to know how other (young) researchers approached their research and bring together translation historians from different disciplines and regions in order to learn from each other and support each other in our research endeavors.

A year in...

After the success of the first international summer school on Translation History (13-20th September 2017) with twenty participants from ten countries, which focused on various theoretical and methodological aspects of historiographical research in Translation Studies, we are proud to announce the second international summer school on Translation History!

We (also) proudly present...

Chronotopos - a Journal of Translation History is another project of our's that has just recently finally launched. Check out the website chronotopos.eu or follow us on Twitter or like us on Facebook.
