The Centre for Translation, Interpreting and Intercultural Studies at Stirling (CTIISS) was established in June 2014. It is an interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary research centre, which seeks to build bridges between interdisciplinary subjects and thus promote cross-disciplinary cooperation. It also aims to create a strong network for translation and interpreting studies specialists in the UK and worldwide.
The centre provides a wide- ranging curriculum at undergraduate (joint degree with China) and postgraduate levels (MSc Translation Studies with TESOL, MRes in Translation Studies, MSc in Specialised Translation and MSc in Business Interpreting). The centre also offers PhD supervision to research students, and organises a range of activities and events, including collaborations with industry, research conferences and seminars.
More information about the Centre can be found on its website. All events will be posted on Twitter. Details of the Translation and Interpreting Programmes are available here.
Dr. Saihong Li is the Director of the Centre. She and her colleague Dr. Anne Stokes organise and run the centre’s events. So far, the centre has over 80 internal members, including members of staff, PhD students, and current and past PGT translation students at the University of Stirling, as well as over 100 external members from a wide range of countries.
