ESLT Summer School 2021

17 mei 2021 - Onderwijs

Oproep voor vertalers die andere vertalers opleiden: meld je aan voor de ESLT Summer School 2021! Van 7 t/m 10 september 2021 organiseert het ELV samen met drie Europese partners de vijfde editie van deze online zomercursus, waarbij het (verder) opleiden van de literair vertaler tot vertaaldocent centraal staat. Aanmelden kan tot 15 juni 2021.

Tijdens de Summer School doorlopen circa vijfentwintig vertalers en opleiders uit Europa een vierdaags programma met lezingen, workshops en paneldiscussies, waaronder een met toonaangevende Europese uitgevers van literaire vertalingen. Voor vertalers in of uit het Nederlands die worden toegelaten, maar geen gebruik kunnen maken van de kortingsregeling voor ESLT alumni (zie hieronder), stelt het ELV een tegemoetkoming beschikbaar van €60. Deze bijdrage wordt verrekend met het inschrijfgeld, dat daardoor niet €120 maar €60 wordt. De voertaal tijdens de Summer School is Engels. Zie meer voor informatie de Engelse tekst hieronder.

Mocht je nog vragen hebben, dan kun je terecht bij het ELV, via literair.vertalen@uu.nl.

Participants’ Feedback from Previous Years

"It was a lively, inspiring, event-packed summer school with a fantastic and diverse group of people and therefore a very stimulating and enjoyable experience." "The lectures were fascinating. The group discussions helped break the ice and work together on practical ideas, which I enjoyed a lot." "I’ve benefited a lot from the experiences of my colleagues as well as the lecturers and mentors, and I’ve also found answers and solutions to many of the issues I had with teaching literary translation."
