MA graduate student poster presentations, ITI conference: deadline 15 February

Hello gentle readers,

It's been a little while, what with the new year and the snow and the tottering inbox. I hope you're all well! There's a bunch of fun stuff coming up. A snippet for current students and recent graduates of MA translation programmes:

ITI is offering current or immediate past MA/MSc students the opportunity to present a poster session at the Institute’s 25th anniversary conference in Birmingham, 7-8 May 2011.
The poster session may be based on work you have done in connection with your translation and/or interpreting course, dissertation or project or on an aspect of translation and/or interpreting work that particularly interests you.
The aim of the poster sessions is to enable practising translators and interpreters to learn about ongoing research and study as part of MA/MSc courses and to give grant recipients an opportunity to meet and network with practising and established translators and interpreters.
The conference is being held at the NEC Galleries, Birmingham, which offers good road, rail and air connections.
If you would like to present your poster, please send an e-mail to education at with:
Your name, university, and university department
Year of study
Title of your poster session and a short outline of the content (max 300 words)
Your daytime telephone number, email and postal address
Final date for submissions: 15 February 2011
We will select a maximum of four dissertations. We would like to include both translation and interpreting topics.
If you are selected to take part, you will be required to:
  • produce and set up a poster display illustrating your research (for tips, Google ‘poster session’ or see
  • be available to discuss it with conference participants
  • give an 8-minute presentation in a conference session organised for this purpose
  • write a short article for ITI Bulletin.
You will receive £100 towards your travel, materials and expenses, and free registration for the conference day when you are presenting.
