Materiality, Digital Cultures and Transmission in Translation Studies

University of Manchester 11-12 November 2016

This two-day event will focus on material and digital cultures, and textual transmission, promoting conversations about how we conceptualise, encounter and research materials and materiality in translation studies. The event will provide a space for exploring concepts of materiality in relation to invention, circulation, performance and interpretation. It will involve scholars who work on issues of materiality and translation, with expertise ranging from medieval manuscripts and early printed books to digital culture and audiovisual formats. These will be accompanied over the two days by presentations from PhD students and early career researchers, a roundtable on the digital humanities and a workshop on the development and application of research methods relevant to the themes of the event.
