Translation and Diversity (Translation Hub)

12 March 2018, 17:00 - 19:00

Seminar room SG1, Alison Richard Building


This session will provide a unique opportunity for all attendees to discuss translations of texts they are either preparing themselves or otherwise working with, and the emphasis will fall primarily on the problems and opportunities associated with different kinds of ‘diversity’. Anyone with an interest in any aspect of translation is very welcome to join us, be they emerging or established translators, undergraduates, postgraduates, academics, poets, or writers. Participants are invited to bring along a text (both in the original and in translation) that can be discussed by the group. It would be helpful if one of the languages involved were English, to provide some common ground, but that is not essential. We encourage attendees to explore emerging literature as well as renderings of canonical texts. The Hub will enable participants to share ideas and to seek focused theoretical and practical advice from others who are closely involved in the dark art of translation.
