The Languages of Translation in Renaissance France and Europe

10 Feb 2017, 10:00 to 10 Feb 2017, 17:00, The Warburg Institute, Woburn Square, London WC1H 0AB

Description

Translation was one of the most important and vibrant areas of reflection and practice in the French Renaissance itself and is one of the primary fields of modern critical interest and investigation.  It is no specialized and remote discipline, but something that was and is at the heart of our understanding of sixteenth-century France.  The aim of this Warburg one-day colloquium is to extend our understanding of the topic and to mark out new pathways in French Renaissance translation studies.  Six speakers have been selected with complementary strengths and areas of expertise.

Organisers: Raphaële Mouren (Warburg Institute) and John O’Brien (Durham University)

This is a University Trust Fund event supported by the Cassal Fund.
