Speaker information

Professor Lorna Hardwick, Open University

Translation of the texts of ancient Greece and Rome has a long and sometimes contentious relationship with subsequent literatures and cultures. This talk identifies some key examples and discusses how the models used to characterise them cover a spectrum from transmission to rewriting and how these in turn relate to the practice and theory of translation studies as well as to the cultural politics of antiquity and modernity.
