Translating Women

in Twentieth-Century Literary Cultures

15-16 May 2024

Sala Napoleonica - Università degli Studi di Milano - Via Sant'Antonio 12 - 20122 MI

About the Event

This conference proposes to bring women translators out of the shadows. It aims to reassess the hitherto overlooked role of women in the creation and circulation of intellectual discourse in literary cultures, and to identify the ways in which translation has allowed women professionals to emerge, to be recognised and to reaffirm their authorial status.

The call for papers is now closed. Thank you for your submission. We expect to notify candidates of the outcome of their proposal by 15 February at the latest.
