PhD Opportunity: Translation and Poetry
Applications are invited for a doctoral studentship, covering fees and maintenance. The studentship will run from September/October 2012 to September/October 2015.
The successful candidate will wish to conceptualise and study translation as a writerly act of interpretation that shapes poetic traditions, as well as potentially other cultural forms and practices.
An interest in minor literatures and recent debates on ‘world’ literature may be an advantage.
The studentship will be held jointly in the School of Modern Languages and the School of English. Internal supervisors will be Professor David Johnston and Professor Ciaran Carson. Professor Lawrence Venuti, who is a Visiting Professor on the Translation Studies programme at Queen’s, will also provide official supervision.
