Talk at the University of Innsbruck

Professor Halverson, our group leader, delivered an online talk with the title (Cognitive) linguistic theory in Translation Studies. It was part of the lectures Translation and Cognition; Translation and Corpora organized by the Institute of Translation Studies (Institut für Translationswissenschaft) at the University of Innsbruck. 

The talk addressed the way Translation and Interpreting Studies should move forward to find a solution against the fragmentation of the field.

As well-established and empirically supported, usage-based approaches typical of Cognitive Linguistics could provide a common theoretical background that is grounded in socio-cognitive ontologies.

This theory is discussed in further detail in Sociocognitive Constructs in Translation and Interpreting Studies (TIS), published together with Professor Kotze
