You’ll find the dynamic Translation Studies community at Glendon offers a variety of research-focused activities throughout the year, such as a translation research summer school, lectures, workshops, networking events and an annual graduate conference. And you can participate in events through the Research Group on Translation and Transcultural Contact, part of the Centre for Research on Language and Culture Contact.
