Articulating Research Impact in Translation and Interpreting Studies

Presented by Sharon O'Brien (Dublin City University) and Chris Mellinger (UNC Charlotte)

Researchers are increasingly expected to create societal impact through their research and to be able to clearly articulate such impact. This expectation is set primarily, though not exclusively, by research funding agencies and by internal and external research assessment panels for reappointment, tenure, and promotion. However, “research impact” is a nebulous term that is embroiled in related concepts of research excellence, open research, research dissemination, research ethics, (responsible) research metrics, and engaged research. This workshop aims to provide participants with a refined understanding of and a better ability to articulate research impact at the end of the workshop, including how to align their research with the UN SDGs or other institutional initiatives, and how to articulate their research as a contribution to society.

Participants will be asked to submit a short statement on the intended impact of their research and to reply to a brief survey prior to the workshop. Participation in the workshop will require this submission so that these impact statements can be workshopped in groups during the workshop. Certificates of completion/attendance are only issued to those who complete all aspects of the workshop (pre-workshop submission, attendance, post-workshop submission).

We hope to see you there!
