This project aims to develop better understandings of, and insights into, how researchers investigating more than one language negotiate and interpret linguistic and cultural meaning in their data—whether dialogic, observational, textual, or mediated. An international team of researchers with different disciplinary backgrounds, research experiences, different languages and performance skills will conduct international comparative research on translation and interpretation at different kinds of borders in order to develop theory, ethical research practices and research methodologies in relation to multilingual research. The main aims of the project are to research interpreting, translation and multilingual practices in challenging contexts, and, while doing so, to evaluate appropriate research methods (traditional and arts based) and develop theoretical approaches for this type of academic exploration.
