It is our pleasure to announce a lecture series as part of the Erasmus+ project ReTrans.

Throughout the semester, several spokespeople of different organisations that support refugees upon their arrival and thus work with interpreters will be invited to the Centre for Translation Studies. Their presentations or interviews will be held on-site, digitally or in a hybrid format and will be announced on this website, our ReTrans Community Forum on Discord and other official communication channels.

All events are organised in cooperation with lecturers and students at the Centre for Translation Studies. Guests are welcome to join either on-site or via Zoom, depending on the event. Participation is free.

The ReTrans project team (Sonja Pöllabauer, Vera Ahamer, Barbara Heinisch, Katia Iacono, Harald Pasch, Tatjana Roos, Maria Zwischenberger)
