Summary

Put your passion for Translation into practice with our Practice-Based PhD. This new programme brings together our expertise in Translation Studies and supervising practice-based research to support you in producing a original work of translation supported by a critical commentary.

Join a stimulating research culture within the Department of Modern Languages, and benefit from our dedicated facilities for Translation Studies research including access to specialist software and an excellent collection of library resources, including e-resources.

On the practice-based programme, you will translate a source text of 18,000-50,000 words that is of significant, publishable quality. This will be supported by a critical commentary on your translation project of no fewer than 50,000 words, which is informed by rigorous research and will discuss, where relevant, critical and creative processes.

Potential source texts include both literary genres (e.g. novels, prose, short stories, screenplays, stage plays, poetry) and non-literary ones (e.g. memoirs/correspondence, academic texts, semi-specialised scientific writing).
