APTIS 2019

2nd Annual Conference

'Inside the Academy/Outside the Academy'

Newcastle University, 23-24 November 2019

(registration for this event is closed)

Conference Room

As the UK and Ireland’s Association of Programmes in Translation and Interpreting Studies, our ambition is to improve the quality of learning and teaching as well as research on translation and interpreting programmes at HE institutions. To achieve this ambition, we encourage scholarly research ‘inside the Academy’ while supporting current and future professionals ‘outside the Academy’ by providing a forum where academics, professional organisations and stakeholders can exchange best practice – across and beyond the Academy.


Following the success of our 1st Annual Conference in Aston University in November 2018, our 2nd Annual Conference will act as a platform from which to enable translator and interpreter trainers, professionals and academics alike, to exchange ideas about the interaction and, sometimes, the tension between the academy and the world beyond (23-24 November 2019, Newcastle University).


As you will see from the conference programme, the panels and hands-on workshops will look at the ways in which teaching and learning connects, or indeed, might connect, structures and concerns within the university setting with structures and concerns from outside that setting. Together, we will try to go beyond the dichotomy “Inside the Academy/Outside the Academy” in the UK and Irish contexts.   


This conference is open to non-UK/Irish academics as well as practitioners. However, the main focus of the conference will remain TIS teaching and training in the UK and Ireland.
