      CETRA 2007
      Nineteenth Summer Research Seminar

      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

      1998), Andrew Chesterman (Helsinki, 1999), Christiane Nord
      (Magdeburg, 2000), Mona Baker (UMIST, Manchester, 2001), Maria
      Tymoczko (Amherst, Massachusetts, 2002), Ian Mason (Heriot-Watt,
      Edinburgh, 2003), Michael Cronin (Dublin City University, 2004),
