Translation in History UCL Lecture Series

A series of five lectures taking place at University College London during Term 2, January -March 2013.

Each of our distinguished guest speakers will explore the role of key figures and movements in specific historical contexts, including Classical translation, the ‘Toledo School’ of translators, Early Modern translation, Dryden’s translation practice, and the German Romantic tradition. The series therefore provides a chronological and multidisciplinary examination of the historical development of the theory and practice of translation, of interest to students of translation, language and literature in a variety of disciplines. Further details of the speakers and lectures are available on our website:

All events take place from 6 to 7.30 pm at the Christopher Ingold XLG2 Auditorium, 20 Gordon Street, London WC1H 0AJ. Supported by the UCL Faculty Institute of Graduate Studies.

Events are free and open to all. Booking is recommended, see individual links below.
