Translation Studies Research Forum

Translation Studies Research Forum, Tuesday 22 May 2012, 2-5pm, Ashley Building, Room, 422, College of Arts and Law

Guest speaker: Professor Susan Bassnett
Following the very successful event with Professor Theo Hermans in 2009, we are delighted to announce that we will be holding another meeting of the Translation Studies Research Forum in May 2012.

Our guest speaker is Susan Bassnett, Professor of Comparative Literature in the Department of English and Comparative Literary Studies at the University of Warwick. Professor Bassnett is a leading figure internationally in the field and her publications include the seminal textbook Translation Studies (3rd edn 2002). She has also (co-) written or edited Translation, History and Culture (1990), Constructing Cultures: Essays on Literary Translation (1996), Postcolonial Translation: Theory and Practice (1998), The Translator as Writer (2006), Translation in Global News (2008) and Political Discourse, Media and Translation (2010).

During the first part of the afternoon, colleagues across the College working on translation-related topics will have the opportunity to discuss their research interests and current projects. Please let us know in the next couple of weeks if you would like to give an informal talk on your research (5-10 mins).

We hope that many of you will be able to attend!
Dr Angela Kershaw (French Studies)
Dr Hilary Brown (Translation Studies)
