The second international summer school on Translation History in Vienna will specifically focus on questions of methods in Translation History and their relationship to translation theory. We have invited renowned guest lecturers who represent a variety of methodological approaches and will share their knowledge about the usage of specific methods in interactive lectures to help advance the participants’ PhD-projects. The methodological issues to be discussed include the relevance and role of case studies, oral history in Interpreting Studies, and source critique. Also, the Viennese team will present their own specific approach to translation history. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in detailed and extensive discussions about their individual projects and present the methodological challenges they are facing.


Invited speakers include:

Dilek Dizdar (University of Mainz/ Germersheim)

Carsten Sinner (University of Leipzig)

Michaela Wolf (University of Graz)

Christopher Rundle (University of Bologna)


Apply until 15th June 2018!

Applications from all countries and different disciplines are welcome. Applicants should have a demonstrable interest in translation historical issues and the contents of the summer school. Also, their PhD-projects should have a certain thematic connection to the summer school’s focus on methods.
