Aurélia Martin has been working for UrbaChina since May 2013. After her studies in English Language at the University of Glasgow, she returned to France where she went through the majority of her schooling.
She has travelled in China and is interested in Chinese cinema and photography.
Aurélia’s role is to help with all publications and communications of research papers. Her linguistic skills are invaluable to the UrbaChina project. Completely bilingual in French and English, she translates and corrects English publications for the French CNRS team in the project, especially the working papers for the UrbaChina collection. She works on all projects in English, including most recently the subtitles for an interview with François Gipouloux on his book The Asian Mediterrannean, which will be put online soon.
While studying in Scotland, she followed some courses in digital humanities and was introduced to a number of relevant computer programmes. She contributes to the UrbaChina blog as well as the project’s digital photo collection (UrbaChina photo collection). She helps manage the collection and train project members to upload their photos, as well as uploading for them. She works especially to ensure that the photos come with quality metadata, and that the UrbaChina blog’s English is coherent and correct.1
