Professor Maurizio Bettini
The UCL Department of Greek and Latin annually hosts a public lecture named in honour of its most celebrated professor (and poet) A. E. Housman. The lecture is delivered by a scholar of international distinction. This year's guest speaker is Professor Maurizio Bettini.
Translation studies can be broadly divided into two strands. The first addresses the actual practice of translation and the second relates to the phenomenon of translation. It is a widely pursued field today, which has its strong points in Walter Benjamin's famous essay, The Task of the Translator. This lecture focuses on how the notion of cultural representation was formed using linguistic and cultural paradigms that were highly specific to the Roman experience.
