Seminars connecting with the local community Seminars connecting with the local community

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.

Highlights from the 2010-11 Research Seminars

We also run a series of Research and Engagement Seminars focused on issues of intercultural competence that are intended to bring together researchers and practitioners with the aim of increasing understanding of each other's perspectives on intercultural issues and, therefore, creating opportunities for collaboration.
