Exil: Trans is an international research group launched in 2019 by the Universities of Lausanne, Germersheim and Vienna, which studies the work and biographies of translators forced into exile by the Nazi regime. The conference will be focusing on the networks that made it possible for translators to continue their work in exile and will aim to emphasize how the act of translating takes place within a broader context.
We welcome all contributions examining the roles of cultural, academic and political institutions, of publishing houses and periodicals, and of specific individuals as mediators and companions for translators in exile at the time of the National Socialist regime.
Deadline for submissions: 20 March 2021
