Summer School 2013 at Birkbeck, University of London
Summer School 2013
The third five-day Summer School of the Useyour project will take place 22-26 July 2013. As before, it is for native Anglophones from anywhere in the world. From 2013 we offer an expanded choice of classes which can be taken singly or combined in a choice of two: translation into English from Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish or Swedish, and Editing from non-Anglophone texts, which is now available as a full course as well as an additional element for all students. All these courses are taught by professionals in the field – their details can be found on this website. All classes consist of a two-hour morning and a two-hour afternoon session.
Another innovation in 2013 is the expansion of the French and German workshops into two groups covering different kinds of texts: one will focus on literary translation and the other on academic translation; if you are a single-French or single-German student, you may opt to take one of these as your ‘Language 1’ and the other as your ‘Language 2’. As last year, there will also be guest lectures, competitions, bursaries (closing date 26 April), social and networking events and the option of student-hall accommodation.
The Summer School will be held in Birkbeck's main building in Torrington Square.
Summer School 2013 fees: Full fee: £450; student fee: £300. Bursaries available: deadline 26 April 2013.
