“Lost in Translation? Social science measurement across English and Spanish Contexts”

Posted on by admin

Date - Friday, 22nd March 2013 (10:00 am - 12:30 pm)


You are invited to attend a half-day Santander Research Collaboration Symposium at the Centre for Criminological Research, School of Law, University of Sheffield on the 22nd March 2013:

“Lost in Translation? Social science measurement across English and Spanish Contexts”

The event is free of charge, although participants are asked to register in advance by sending their name, institution and any dietary or other requirements to Lisa Burns (l.k.burns@sheffield.ac.uk) by the 12th March. Please feel free to forward the information to anyone you think may be interested.

Details: Comparative research has become increasingly important to generate impact in international policy-making environments. Yet developing reliable, consistent measures of social activities across linguistic contexts is a difficult challenge. It requires more than translation of survey questions, interview questions, etc from one language to another, because these questions are interpreted in differing cultural contexts. This symposium brings together specialists working across English and Spanish contexts to examine what works, what doesn’t and what’s promising.

 

Programme:

10am Welcome, introductions
Paul Knepper, University of Sheffield

10.15 ‘Surveying gangs and violence in Spain: Issues for cross-national research’
Juanjo Medina-Ariza, University of Manchester

10.45 ‘Interviewing Latinos about family issues in Tucson and London’
Veronica Cano, University of Sheffield

11.15 Break

11.30 ‘Gauging delinquency in Spain using the International Self Report Delinquency (ISRD) survey’
Antonia Linde, Open University of Catalonia and Autonomous University of Barcelona

12.00 ‘Interpreting results of statistical analyses of surveys with Spanish speaking respondents’
Alvaro Martinez-Perez, University of Sheffield

12 .30 Lunch
