Woon de openbare evenementen van de online ESLT Summer School 2022 bij

05 september 2022 - Evenementen

Als onderdeel van de ESLT Summer School, waarvan het ELV één van de organisatoren is, zullen op dinsdag 6 en vrijdag 9 september twee evenementen online vrij toegankelijk zijn voor geïnteresseerden. Het gaat om een lezing van Ros Schwartz en een panelgesprek over professionalisering. Meld je aan om erbij te zijn. 


Tijdens deze Europese zomercursus staat het (verder) opleiden van de literair vertaler tot vertaaldocent centraal. Het thema van deze online editie van de ESLT Summer School is "Translators working with others" en daar passen de twee openbare evenementen perfect in.

Op dinsdag 6 september van 12.00 tot 13.00 uur onderzoekt Ros Schwartz de verschillende manieren van samen vertalen in de lezing "On the same page".

Meld je hier aan voor deze lezing.

Op vrijdag 9 september van 9.30 tot 11.00 uur staat er een panelgesprek over vertalersverenigingen op het programma. Hoe kunnen zij vertalers voorbereiden op een professioneel bestaan? Moeten zij zich verenigen met collega's?

Vertaler Leonardo Marcello Pignataro zal het gesprek tussen Lara Hölbling Matković (CEATL), Johanna McCalmont (ETN) modereren.

Meld je hier aan voor het panelgesprek.
