The EST Translation Studies Event Grant for 2012 has been awarded to the University of Portsmouth, for the organization of their conference ‘Those Who Can, Teach’: Translation, Interpreting and Training, to take place on November 3, 2012.
We had seven very good candidates for the grant this year. Apart from the high scientific quality and international reach of the conferences, we have also looked at the financial proposals, i.e. how much could be accomplished with the funds we offered.
The University of Portsmouth declared they would use the grant to cover the expenses of two keynote speakers (Dorothy Kelly of the University of Granada and Daniel Toudic of the University of Rennes II) and to cover five bursaries for postgraduate speakers who might have greater difficulty obtaining funding from their institutions to attend.
