Collaborative Translation

A group of MITN PG/ECRs are building a new research project about collaborative translations. The project explores how two or more participants with complimentary skill sets can collaboratively share functions of the translation process. The model will be tested through case studies drawn from ongoing research undertaken by PG/ECRs at Monash and Warwick, and it will then be applied as a working method in a variety of professional, community-based and academic contexts.

The current areas of focus include:

MITN Website Update

MITN is in the process of updating their main website, hosted by Warwick. One priority is to increase the visibility of the PG/ECR activities. Further updates to follow, but please note the following:
There is a page for PG/ECR profiles. This is designed to help you search for other MITN members who might be interested in collaborating on a project or a cluster. Please email us if you would like to have your profile uploaded.


Alice Whitmore and Ayten Alibaba reflect on the event that launched the postgraduate research cluster 'Space Place and the City'. 
Please email MITN Project Coordinator Gavin Schwartz-Leeper if you wish to contribute to the blog.

Funding Opp

The deadline for applications is April 11
The Monash/Warwick Alliance is offering funding for student projects 'that seek to integrate the student bodies of both universities' by organising academic events, cultural and intercultural activities or skills development events. If you have a current project that might fit this profile, or a project idea you'd like to develop, see more details here (for Warwick students) and here (for Monash students). 
'Performing Narratives' Cluster
Watch this space! The first cluster event will be held around May 2016.
This cluster adopts a broad understanding of the concepts of performance and narrative. It aims to incorporate theatre and performance studies; narrative and performative analysis through interviews, ethnography, literary or creative research methodologies; the location of narrative and performance in media, cultural, and institutional sites. For more info, please contact Reagan or Naomi 

Research Clusters

Is there an area of research related to migration, identity and/or translation that you would like to explore with other postgraduates and early career researchers?
Email us with your ideas and we will publish an Expression of Interest!


To our MITN/Warwick colleagues Liam Lewis and Gianmarco Mancosu, who were among the winners of the Warwick HRC Doctoral Fellowship Competition. Have a look at the conferences they will (co-)organize: Bodies in Flux and Trespassing the Borders respectively.
