The Centre for Translation and Textual Studies (CTTS) is a University-Designated Research Centre of Dublin City University, Ireland. It was established in 2000 to pursue research in translation and textual studies, applied languages, and related areas.
Collectively and individually we study the cultural and historical transformation of multimodal, multilingual and translingual communicative practices and their impact on the creation and consumption of ‘text’ in its traditional and modern forms. This applied research endeavour impacts on national and international models, policies and practices on the theoretical, industrial, pedagogical and societal dimensions.
Interdisciplinarity and collaboration are at the heart of the CTTS. We work with other research groups and initiatives within DCU, across universities, e.g. ADAPT – Centre for Global Intelligent Content, and internationally. We also have a track record in research collaboration with industry partners.
