Abstract

The nursing home resident of today is old and frail. Despite such a frailty, many residents are hospitalized, often with the intention of life-extension.

Abstract

This volume reconstructs with great detail the history and the rapid development of the prestigious research centre, Instituto Antonio de Nebrija de Estudios sobre la Universidad, founded in the late 1980s at Charles III University of Madrid and briefly risen to a truly great international research lab on University and Higher Education History in Spain and in South-American countries. On the basis of a wide range of archival and print sources, the author puts his focus on the most significant moments of the Instituto Antonio de Nebrija de Estudios sobre la Universidad, from its laborious creation in 1997 to the attempt to convert it into a LOU University Institute for Research and its incorporation into the Instituto Figuerola de Historia y Ciencias Sociales in 2009, and he introduces the countless and considerable scientific research activities promoted over the years, without leaving out that seriousness and that methodological rigour which have punctually characterized all the works produced and the initiatives made.

Abstract

"The purpose of this volume is to explore key issues, approaches and challenges to quality in institutional translation by confronting academics’ and practitioners’ perspectives. What the reader will find in this book is an interplay of two approaches: academic contributions providing the conceptual and theoretical background for discussing quality on the one hand, and chapters exploring selected aspects of quality and case studies from both academics and practitioners on the other. Our aim is to present these two approaches as a breeding ground for testing one vis-à-vis the other. This book studies institutional translation mostly through the lens of the European Union (EU) reality, and, more specifically, of EU institutions and bodies, due to the unprecedented scale of their multilingual operations and the legal and political importance of translation. Thus, it is concerned with the supranational (international) level, deliberately leaving national and other contexts aside. Quality in supranational institutions is explored both in terms of translation processes and their products – the translated texts."
