CETRA seminar, August 2007
- CETRA 2007
Nineteenth Summer Research Seminar
Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium,
20 - 31 August 2007
In 1989 José Lambert created a special research program in
Translation Studies at the University of Leuven in order to promote
research training in the study of translational phenomena and to
stimulate high-level research into the cultural functions of
translation. Since then, this unique program has attracted talented
PhD students and young scholars to spend two weeks of research under
the supervision of a team of prominent scholars, and under the
supervision of the Chair Professor, an annually appointed expert in
the field of Translation Studies. From 1989 on, the program has
hosted participants from Austria to Australia, from Brazil to
Burundi, and from China to the Czech Republic.
The list of CETRA professors may serve as an illustration of the
program's openness to the different currents in the discipline and
in the international world of Ttranslation Studies: Gideon Toury
(Tel Aviv, 1989), Hans Vermeer (Heidelberg, 1990), Susan Bassnett
(Warwick, 1991), Albrecht Neubert (Leipzig, 1992), Daniel Gile
