VL Cognitive Processes in Translation & Interpreting (MA)

Monika Pluzyczka

Shortname: 06.008.0505
Course No.: 06.008.0505

Contents

An interdisciplinary course about cognitive basis in language processing, problem solving, multicultural communication and primarily in translation and interpreting. In the course translation is seen as an act and an event, having as its main focus the cognitive and mental processes of the translating or interpreting individual in the act of translating.
The course will present new insights and approaches to the neurobiology of language, aiming to explain the intricacies of cognitive processing during translation and interpreting (various aspects of translators and interpreters’ observable and non-observable processes) and to describe new fields of investigation in which the neurosciences intersect with linguistic and translation studies research more closely than before.
What is the relationship between language and cognition? How does the brain produce language and what can go wrong? Do people who speak different languages really think in a different way? Is a certain level of cognitive abilities/ capacity required for language acquisition? Which benefits has a bilingual brain? Is language the same type of mental entity as other cognitive abilities, or is it different? How does your brain learn a new language? Which processes are involved in translation & interpreting activity? How do interpreters juggle two languages at once? What does it mean lost in translation? – during the course we will try to answer these and many more questions about the relation between cognition and translation.
The course will also present the changes of how we investigate mental basis of language processing in relation to theoretical advances in language and translation research and increasing accessibility of experimental techniques in the cognitive neurosciences (and hence in linguistics and translation studies).
