On November 10, 2015, the Faculty of Education at BURCH University in cooperation with the Faculty of Arts, Leeds University, and the Association for Applied Linguistics in Bosnia and Herzegovina (AALBiH) organized two seminars in the field of translation given by Professor Jeremy Munday.
Professor Munday is a distinguished scholar and an expert translator, whose area of expertise includes stylistics, discourse and text analysis, systemic functional linguistics, and ideology in the translation of literary and political works and speeches, with particular reference to Spain and Latin America.
In front of an audience of 150 participants Professor Munday talked about identifying critical points of translator decision-making in reference to the Appraisal Theory, and about variation and its impact on legitimate translation. The participants, including representatives from the Universities in Sarajevo, Zenica, Tuzla, Mostar, and Belgrade, as well as a number of teachers from primary and secondary schools, had the chance to interact with Professor Munday during and after the seminar.
As a token of appreciation, Dean of Education Faculty Assoc.Prof.Dr. Azamat Akbarov awarded a certificate of appreciation to Professor Jeremy Munday, alongside an honorary AALBiH membership. Professor Munday’s lecture is the first in a series of fall lectures organized by the Faculty of Education. The lectures will extend into December.
