University of Cardiff

The University of Cardiff will participate through the department of School of European Languages, Translation and Politics The School is an inter-disciplinary centre of excellence and one of the largest and most dynamic Schools of its type in the UK. The School enjoys an international reputation in research and teaching. The research and teaching interests of the School reflect each of our main subject areas of the language, literature, history and society of France, Germany, Italy and Spain, as well as Translation Studies, Politics and International Relations. We have over 1400 students and 80 staff and teach a wide variety of undergraduate and postgraduate taught courses, as well as offering specialised PhD supervision in a wide variety of areas. We have recently being involved in a series of widening access activities to create pathways into education for learners from non-traditional backgrounds (adult learners, lifelong learners, learners from ethnic minorities or underprivileged backgrounds) Many of our students spend time in other European Universities as part of their studies, and we have close links with universities in Europe including Bordeaux, Paris, Milan, Berlin, Frankfurt, Barcelona and Granada. In Grundtvig Project our department will be responsible for the high quality of the translations in respect of a standard suitable for the literary meaning of the operation.

For Wise Project theatrical activities University of Cardiff will cooperate with August 12 Company, leaded by Mathilde Lopez.

August 012 is a theatre company that aims to produce vigorous and ambitious international contemporary plays rarely seen in Wales.
The company will endeavour to bring the writing and ideas of the rest of the world to the Welsh stage, in English, Welsh and other languages.
August 012 will be a platform to develop Welsh talent and commits to researching, exploring and developing ideas, staging with actors, designers, musicians and creative technicians.
Our work will be developed, shaped and questioned by the way we live here and now, and therefore be profoundly and structurally relevant to the nation today.
