VI International Conference of the Association of British and Irish Lusitanists (ABIL)

University of Exeter, 7-8 September 2015
Reed Hall

Translating Cultures themed panel at the conference:

The idea of ‘Translating Cultures’ has become increasingly useful in Modern Languages to describe and connect the multiple strands of our scholarly activities. The phrase declares its connection with Translation Studies, but ‘Translating Cultures’ also describes the activities of scholars interested in intercultural movements that include, but also extend beyond, linguistic translation, to embrace temporal and intermedial migrations, and cross-border movements, both literal and metaphorical. This diversity is exemplified in our papers, which range from analyses of cultures across borders within Europe and beyond, and engage with the disciplines of art, literature and Translation Studies.
