ABSTRACT

Translation Studies is now matured to the point where it systematically looks back on what it has achieved and explores the direction in which it needs to go further. Out of efforts to understand the landscape of Translation Studies, this paper aims to examine research models employed in audiovisual translation(AVT) research papers and identify any potential areas for future research. While AVT is a fast growing field both for research and practice, its research methodologies, in particular models for analysis, have not been often discussed. This paper adopts two frameworks, Grotjahn(1987) and Pérez-González(2014), to analyze research models in Masters and Doctorial theses on AVT produced in Korea. It finds that research models substantially focus on linguistic shifts between source texts and target texts, and that many of the theses qualitatively interpret data of small quantity to support claims made in them. This paper suggests shifting a focus when selecting research models, exploring into new topics, and utilizing parallel and comparable corpus to strengthen reliability of analysis.
