Project DaRT is looking for an MA REPRESENTATIVE to get actively involved in event organisation and administration, and act as a bridge between project members and MA students in the School of Languages, Literatures and Cultures.
What is Project DaRT?
Project DaRT is a group of postgraduate researchers who aim to create a dynamic community of translation enthusiasts by reflecting on the application of theory to research and practice in a supportive, open space. We have a regular podcast on translation theory and a full timeline of exciting events planned for the year 2018/2019, including a Wikipedia translathon to celebrate International Translation Day, a fundraiser for Translators without Borders, an engagement project with secondary schools, a full week of translation and language-related workshops and seminars in March, and a conference in June 2019.
What are we looking for?
We are looking for an MA student in the School of Languages, Literatures and Cultures with an interest in translation in any of its facets, to participate in all our event organisation and general administration for research and outreach activities (funding applications, community engagement, etc.), and to act as a bridge for communication between Project DaRT and MA students. We are looking for a well-organised individual with strong communication and interpersonal skills who is passionate about visibilizing translation within the academic community at UCC as well as the general public.
You will be expected to participate in meetings leading to the organisation of events, to bring new ideas to the table, to involve other MA students, and to help the coordination team with promotion and dissemination activities. You will be able to contribute to out blog and podcasts, and to gain valuable project management and event organisation experience for the future.
If you are interested in becoming Project DaRT’s new MA Representative, please fill in this form before the 7th of October. Good luck!
