Emuni Agricola Translation Studies Doctoral and Teacher Training Summer School 

The EMUNI Translation Studies Doctoral and Teacher Training Summer School initiative has been operative since 2012 and offered two summer schools in Slovenia (2012, 2013), one in Granada (2014), and the latest summer school was held in Turku, Finland, in the summer of 2015 as a joint project of the University of Turku and the University of Eastern Finland. Our guest professors in 2015 celebrated Finland’s long-standing involvement in Translation Studies and promoted discussion and exchange of views between different research paradigms as well as theory and practice. The name of the school in its 2015 edition pays homage to Finland’s best-known translator, Mikael Agricola (c. 1510–1557).
The rise of dedicated MA and PhD programmes across Europe and globally indicate that there is a growing need to provide high-level doctoral training for PhD students, and that there is also a pressing need to continuously provide teacher training to the existing and future translation teachers in order to keep them up to date with the latest developments in the field. The EMUNI Translation Studies Doctoral Summer School and Teacher Training Summer School responds to these needs by offering 1) an up-to-date account of contemporary research with emphasis on historical and sociological perspectives and 2) a special module on translator training pedagogy.  
Information on next year’s summer school will be available on this site in early 2016.
