Saturday, 24 February, 2007

Both the concept and the practice of Œtranslation‚ were a vital part of Renaissance culture throughout Europe, stimulated in part by the growth in printing and reading, and by travel and the exchange of ideas across cultures. The proposed one-day symposium seeks to explore the topic of Œtranslation‚ in all of its manifestations, ranging from translation from one language to another, to Œtranslation‚ involving the shift between different discursive registers within English-speaking cultures.

Among those who have already agreed to offer papers are:
Dr Danielle Berton (University of Cleremont)
Professor Supriya Chaudhuri (Jadvaphur University, Bengal)
Dr Sarah Knight (University of Leicester)
Dr Robin Sowerby (University of Stirling)
Dr Alison Thorne (University of Strathclyde)
Dr Sergi Mainer (British Academy Fellow, University of Stirling)

It may be possible to accommodate ONE or TWO further papers, but proposals will need to be submitted by 23 January, 2007 at the latest to: Professor J Drakakis: email address: jd1@stir.ac.uk
