Researching multilingually: at the borders of Law, Health, Conflict and State Security


Researching multilingually: at the Borders of Law, Health, Conflict and State Security.


The Arts and Humanities Research Council Translating Cultures Program awarded one of its three large grants of 2 Million Pounds to the project, lead by professor Alison Phipps, University of Glasgow. An international team of researchers with different disciplinary backgrounds, research experiences, different languages 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 has two overarching aims:

1) to research interpreting, translation and the multilingual practices in challenging contexts, and, 2) while doing so, to evaluate appropriate research methods (traditional and arts based) and develop theoretical approaches for this type of academic exploration.
