Online Translation Studies Reading Group

About this Event

Every month, the Trinity Centre for Literary and Cultural Translation organises a reading group, where one person chooses a recently published academic journal article in the field, which we all read and then come together to discuss. Our May 2020 session was the first of these discussions we held online. Each month, we repeat the process and deepen our discussion. This is the article we will read in March 2021:

March 2020:

Kwaśna, Karolina, and Magda Heydel. "“Why Don’t You Tell Them…” Unheard Voices in Claude Lanzmann’s Film Shoah." Przekladaniec (2019): 26-254.

Nominated by Karolina Kaminska (Universität Hamburg)

Please note that for copyright reasons, we are not able to send articles to anybody who does not have access to them already.

These seminars are open to researchers around the world, irrespective of university affiliation. If you would like to join a discussion, please read the respective article first, and register for the event to get the link to the webinar.


Each article is nominated by someone, who kicks off our discussion by introducing why they picked the article and what they made of it. We aim to have a different nominator each month.

If you would like to nominate an article for the Translation Studies Reading Group, all you need to do is identify:

a piece of Translation Studies Research

in the form of an article or a work of similar length,

which you didn't write

that has recently been published

and that is readily available in an electronic form

Once you have a text you would like to nominate, please simply fill out this form.
