Prof. Dr. Gert De Sutter (26 February - 09 March 2018)

I am currently working as Associate Professor in Translation Studies and Dutch Linguistics in the Department of Translation, Interpreting and Communication at Ghent University. My research can be broadly characterised as empirical research of linguistic variation in translated and non-translated texts. The overall aim of my research is to get a better insight into the complex interaction of social norms and bilingual cognition in translators.

Research topics I am currently dealing with are norm conformity (normalisation) and shining through in corpus-based translation studies as well as a variety of syntax-oriented topics in Dutch language studies: variable word order in Dutch verb clusters and PP placement in Dutch. Most of the studies I conduct are corpus-based and use advanced quantitative methods (logistic regression, mixed-effects modelling, correspondence analysis...).

While in Aachen, I will work with Prof. Stella Neumann and her team on our ongoing cooperation on translation studies.
