“Expressing yourself in Covid times” was the theme of an exciting new languages competition targeting Transition Year (TY) students and launched by DCU’s School of Applied Language and Intercultural Studies (SALIS) in 2021. This competition was made possible thanks to the support of Languages Connect. 2020/2021 was a year like no other and as schools returned to the classroom, DCU wanted to give TY students the opportunity to express themselves in a creative way through the languages they love. Specifically, looked for competition entries using the languages taught at DCU which include: Chinese, French, German, Japanese, and Spanish. https://www.dcu.ie/commsteam/news/2021/apr/dcu-launches-languages-competition-transition-year-students

Research Interests

Lucía's research background lies on translation and language teaching, focusing on the principles on how translation may be used as a tool in the foreign language classroom and also how it may be developed as a skill in the benefit of FL learners. Her interdisciplinary research is carried out through a framework of Translation Studies, Applied Linguistics and Cognitive Studies. 

Her current research includes also the nexus between translation and memory studies, focusing particularly on cultural artefacts during the Spanish Civil War, Franco's dictatorship and afterwards within literary translation.
