The International Research School for Media Translation and Digital Culture is aimed at an international audience and primarily addresses the needs of doctoral and early career researchers in translation, interpreting and intercultural studies, as well as more experienced academics who are new to the discipline or interested in engaging with recent developments in the field. It contributes to realizing one of the priorities of the SISU Baker Centre for Translation and Intercultural Studies, namely, advancing the study of translation in the context of digital (audiovisual) media and online spaces.

The programme consists of five modules:

  • Module 1. Theoretical Approaches to Media Translation Research
  • Module 2. Research Methods in Media Translation
  • Module 3. Research Design & Dynamics
  • Module 4. Featured Theme: Translation and Distribution in the Streaming Age
  • Module 5. Academic Career Development

Each module encompasses three contact hours and six hours of guided reading.

Students participating in the School spend their mornings in taught sessions, while afternoons are spent in small group tutorials and independent study. Each student participates in two tutorials during the School.

On the sixth and final day, students will present their work to fellow students and staff and receive oral feedback.
