Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz/Germersheim, Germany

Our first destination is Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz/Germersheim, Germany. The webinar about this Translation School will take place on Friday, May 27 at 2 pm CET (UTC+1).

One of the first students at JGU was Georg Forster, naturalist, ethnologist, father of travelogues. The Faculty of Translation Studies, Linguistics and Cultural Studies, FTSK, is located in the town of Germersheim (109 km south of Mainz): lush landscapes, an old castle, ancient churches and the majestic Rhine, filling the town with a spirit of idyllic romanticism. At the same time, with students from more than 80 countries, it is the most international campus, a crossroads and laboratory of cultures and civilizations – the perfect place for translation studies and a Faculty to teach translators.

The Faculty’s mission is to mediate languages and cultures. Language proficiency is one of its foremost goals, safeguarded by translingual teaching programs in addition to language-specific training in translation and interpreting. Interuniversity and international cooperations are a major aspect of integrated study programs. In addition to regular study and teaching programs, the Faculty also engages in offering further qualification courses and programs covering a whole range of subjects and activities (summer schools, specialist translation courses, including language training for refugees). Listen to the rhythm of the river Rhine!

Languages of the webinar: English, Russian (consecutive translation will be provided during the event).
