Translation in History Lecture Series - Professor Lorna Hardwick (Open University)
Thursday, January 17, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM (GMT)
London, United Kingdom
Hot spots in a love/hate relationship: Conflict and conversation between Greek and Roman texts and their translators.
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.
The first of five lectures in the Translation in History series, investigating the role of key figures and movements in the historical development of the theory and practice of translation. Convened by Geraldine Brodie and Dorota Gołuch, supported by the UCL Faculty Institute of Graduate Studies.
