Prof. Helena Miguélez-Carballeira (Bangor University)

This One-day Symposium aims to bring together ongoing and emerging research on literary translation in Wales to encourage new critical understandings of the uses of translation in Wales’ literary cultures during the 20th- and 21st-centuries. It will consist of four sessions (two in Welsh and two in English) addressing the uses of translation in 20th- and 21st- Welsh literary cultures from a variety of perspectives. Sessions will comprise a guest chair and three participants.
