Event description
Literary Translation Studies Today & Tomorrow

About this event

Literary Translation as a sub-field of Translation Studies has historically been extremely important in the formulation of new theories, paradigms, and approaches. As Translation Studies has continued to broaden during the 21st century, what we know about literary forms of translation has been further enriched by new findings on technical, performative and political texts.

Today, literary translation is seen as the last bastion of human translation, still mostly beyond the scope of machine translation systems (Toral & Way 2014), and largely untouched by the computer-aided translation systems that have revolutionised many other forms of translation over the past four decades. Meanwhile, the PETRA-E Framework for the education and training of literary translators is shaping and developing the next generation of literary translators in new ways.

As we stand on the cusp of a new era for literary translation studies research and practice, this conference takes stock of the current state of the art, and also looks forward to see what the near-future might hold. It asks as its central research question how literary translation studies and/or practice might change and develop over the next decade.

Each of our presenters has 20 minutes to speak, followed by 10 minutes of questions and answers.

Participation in the conference is welcome from anyone with an interest in literary translation research, practice and teaching.

The conference is hybrid in nature, meaning that some presenters will be delivering their findings from Dublin, while others will be connecting from somewhere else. The majority of the non-presenting audience will connect virtually. However, a small number of in-person seats will also be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

The full programme can be accessed on the conference app, here: https://petra-e.glideapp.io
