Dr Francis Jones, Francis Jones is Reader in Translation Studies at Newcastle University. He teaches on translator and interpreter training MAs, and his research focuses on poetry translation. He is also a poetry translator from Dutch, Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian and other languages: he has published 23 translated and co-translated books, and has won 14 poetry translation prizes.
Dr Francis Jones discusses James S. Holmes (1924–1986), a founding father of translation studies, and one of the main Dutch-English poetry translators and poetry-translation editors of his generation. This talk uses his poetry translation career as a case study of a 'dedicated expert' – someone who devotes their working life to transmitting poetry between two languages.
