Connect with peers and explore wider cross-cultural communication and translation issues Connect with peers and explore wider cross-cultural communication and translation issues

This series has two aims. One aim is to provide an opportunity for UEA colleagues and students to attend presentations focused on issues of cross-cultural communication and translation studies, our two main areas of research. The other aim is to connect with guests from the local community who have an interest in the topic addressed and can offer valuable perspectives, thus widening the impact of the research while, at the same time, contributing to the development of the research itself.
