Literary Translator Studies

About this Event

Join us for the launch of this new book.

The emerging field of Literary Translator Studies firmly positions the literary translator as a subject of research. The editors of the book will talk about how we can study the roles, identities and personalities of literary translators as human beings rather than disembodied channels of communication. They will also present some outstanding individuals, some of them long-forgotten literary translators, others well-known figures who appear in a new light.
