The UK Higher Education Academy Subject Centre for Languages, Linguistics and Area Studies (LLAS) and the English Subject Centre are pleased to announce the following FREE day conference:
*Texts in Translation*
Date: 31st January 2008
Venue: University of Sheffield, UK
Of interest to colleagues from Modern Languages and English Studies in particular, this event will focus on such themes as: the pros and cons of teaching literature in translation; using translations as a tool to open up literary study; translations of literary and cultural theory; the use of electronic texts; and modern translations of medieval texts. We hope that the day will result in the sharing of positive approaches to teaching with translations, and ideas for the development of literature curricula.
