Graduate Conferences

The second ID-TS event for doctoral students was held on 12 and 13 April 2019. It was organised at Tampere University together with a KÄTU symposium and in collaboration with the national Finnish PhD training network Langnet. Both the symposium’s poster session and the pre-symposium text seminar for doctoral students were conducted as joint sessions between KäTu and ID-TS. Several students from ID-TS member institutions participated at the event. Tadej Pahor, a doctoral student from Slovenia, described the event as follows: “It means a lot to me to have actively taken part at the XVII Symposium for Translation and Interpreting Studies on 12-13 April 2019 in Tampere, Finland. I was able to meet some of the prominent Finnish and international scholars, among them Andrew Chesterman, Maureen Ehrensberger-Dow and Mary Nurminen, and other researchers and doctoral students. The symposium provided an excellent opportunity to establish contacts with my peers, present my research and get acquainted with the research of others. I found most interesting the presentations on CAT tools, ergonomics of translation, and TS methodology. I am already looking forward to participating at future postgraduate conferences.” His Finnish colleague, Anu Heino from Tampere University wrote the following: “I found the ID-TS text workshop very useful and the feedback I received from my own text helped me to improve my text very much.  The atmosphere was relaxed, friendly, inspiring and encouraging. It was great to get to know what other people are working on and hear their ideas and thoughts on my own research.”

The first ID-TS event for doctoral students was held on 7 and 8 September 2018 at KU Leuven’s campus in Antwerp, Belgium. The event was organised around the theme ‘Publishing in Translation Studies‘ and was a joint CETRA and ID-TS event. There was a poster session for PhD students in the network and a workshop teaching PhD-student-related skills. Participants also had the opportunity to hear talks by Gisèle Sapiro, Yves Gambier, Dirk Delabastita, Sandra Halverson and others.
