Researching Multilingually: At the Borders of Language, the Body, Law and the State
The Researching Multilingually at Borders project, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) through the Translating Cultures Theme as one of its three large grant awards. The project is a collaboration between seven academic institutions (international and UK) and third sector organisations, and will run for 3 years (2014-2017).
The international team of researchers, with their different disciplinary backgrounds, research experiences, language and performance skills, will conduct international comparative research on translation and interpretation at different kinds of border in order to develop theory, ethical research practices and research methodologies in relation to multilingual research.
The project, led by Professor Alison Phipps at University of Glasgow has two overarching aims:
- to research interpreting, translation and multilingual practices in challenging contexts, and,
- while doing so, to evaluate appropriate research methods (traditional and arts based) and develop theoretical approaches for this type of academic exploration.
