1 The Teacher as Researcher: Notes on a Productive Relationship
This chapter offers a reflection on the relationship between teaching and research from a broadly historical perspective. It focuses on the earliest example of this relationship in connection with interpreting, dating back to the formative years of the interpreting profession in the twentieth century. The case under study is Jesús Sanz, a Catalonian teacher who was the author of the very first piece of empirical research on professional interpreting. Following a biographical sketch and a review of Sanz’s motivation and research interests, the paper recalls aspects of his published work in the light of current concerns in the field of interpreting studies. This leads to some broader reflections on the relation between teaching and research in interpreter education, suggesting a few lessons to be learned from Sanz’s early example, and pointing to opportunities for closer interaction and an ever more productive relationship.
