The International Doctorate in Translation Studies
(ID-TS) is growing

We are pleased to report that as a result of the second round of applications, four new doctoral programmes have been admitted to the International Doctorate in Translation Studies (ID-TS), a worldwide network of doctoral Translation Studies programmes:

KU Leuven (Belgium)
Charles University Prague (Czech Republic)
University of Tampere (Finland)
University of Turku (Finland).

Our warmest congratulations to the new members. The ID-TS network now consists of 14 members which represent doctoral programmes from eleven countries.

The ID-TS Network will be officially launched at a special event to be held on 19 September 2017 in Vienna in connection with the summer PhD seminar Translation  in History – History in Translation organized by the University of Vienna’s Centre for Translation Studies. At this launch event, a Board of Management of the ID-TS will be elected and the membership fee will be agreed. This event will also be an excellent opportunity to reflect on an action plan and agree on activities the network will organise in the future.

The chief aim of this network is to achieve international cooperation in the field of doctoral education in order to promote higher quality in student recruitment, program content and delivery, research design, publication of research, supervision, as well as mobility and placement opportunities (see the ID-TS Foundation Document at http://www.est-translationstudies.org/committees/doc_studies/IS_TS.html).

The EST Executive Board and the ID-TS Evaluation Committee are delighted that this important initiative has come to fruition and we are looking forward to a successful work of the network and its further growth. The deadline for the third round of applications will be decided by the ID-TS Management Board.
