Course summary

The PhD Translation is a rigorous, structured interdisciplinary translation researcher training programme, which aims to enable students to acquire a solid understanding of Translation Studies scholarship, history, discourses, trends and debates, and to support students in the production of original work within this context. ‘Translation Studies’ (TS) is taken in a broad sense, and embraces research on written translation, interpreting, audiovisual translation, localization, and adaptation, among other areas.

As part of the programme, students will engage with a range of historical and contemporary resources and scholarship in TS, and learn to appropriate conceptual frameworks and methodologies, both from TS, and from a range of cognate disciplines, and to apply these to their own original work. Students will contribute to the development of the discipline, and the promotion of translation beyond the academy, by advancing their work for dissemination through conferences, symposia, and industry events, peer-reviewed publications and online forums.

The Department of English and Comparative Literature consists of some 40 scholars and creative writers whose work is acknowledged and cited internationally. We particularly encourage cross-disciplinary and interdisciplinary research in emerging fields of study and creative practice.

As well as working with scholars and writers of international standing, you will have the opportunity to play an active role in a vibrant research environment which includes the Richard Hoggart Lectures in Literature and Culture, the annual Goldsmiths Prize for bold and innovative fiction, and specialist seminars and colloqia offered by the Goldsmiths Writers' Centre, the Goldsmiths Literature Seminars (GLITS), the Goldsmiths Linguistics Seminars (GoldLingS), and the e-journal, GLITS-e.
