Translation Studies Summer School

From a translation studies list, I noticed the following information on a summer school that would be useful for those who want to begin to do research in the field:

Announcing a funding opportunity for the Translation Research Summer School

Two full scholarships (covering fees, travel and accommodation) are now available for current or future PhD students to participate in the 2008 Translation Research Summer School which will take place in Manchester, UK, from 16 to 27 June.

The Summer School offers intensive research training in translation and intercultural studies for prospective researchers in the field, over a two-week period.
