Speaker information

Professor Gesine Manuwald, Professor of Latin, UCL, Gesine Manuwald is Professor of Latin and has been at UCL since 2007, after stints in Freiburg (Germany), Oxford and Princeton. Her main research interests are in Roman drama, Roman epic, Cicero’s rhetoric and the reception of the classical world, especially in Neo-Latin literature. She has published a number of articles and edited volumes on Neo-Latin literature, most recently the collection Neo-Latin Poetry in the British Isles (2012, co-edited with Luke Houghton).

Translating from and into Latin in 16th- and 17th-century England was an exercise to create linguistic fluency, but also to make writings available to a larger number of readers. This lecture by Professor Gesine Manuwald (UCL Greek and Latin) will shed light on translation practices and the educational context in the Elizabethan period.
