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."
