III International Conference Translating Voices, Translating Regions

Opening Workshop, 9 March 2012
Translation as a Process: translators and cultural change

Conference, 10-11 March 2012 Translators as Mediators: Trading local cultures and languages

Venue: Joachim Room, St Hild and St Bede College, Durham University, Durham, UK
Dates: 9.03.2012 – 11.03.2012
Times: 10:00-17:00

The third International conference aims to address questions around the role of translators as mediators of local cultures over the centuries, following consistently and in many ways completing the work initiated by the first two of the series (2005 and 2007), where new approaches to the debate on translation of regionalised languages were discussed. The conference intends to focus on the particularly elusive figure of the translator, following its status, development and perception from the Middle Ages to the early 17th century. The translator shows a complex and multifaceted nature, both in terms of education and background that deserves thorough scrutiny.
