Departments and Units


Along with the FTI, the Interpreting Department is regularly engaged in outreach activities. These include open days, public lectures as well as regular Interpreting Table Talks.

Interpreting Table Talks are interviews aimed at promoting the dissemination of research in the field of interpreting studies by providing leading scholars with a platform to share their insights into the field. Hosted at FTI’s Interpreting Department, Interpreting Table Talks are recorded live to tape (with or without live streaming) and addressed to a student audience interested in seminal work contributing to the body of literature on interpreting. Guests are invited based on their publication record (only recent monographs are considered) but expressions of interest are welcome (please contact int-fti (at)
