British Decadence and Translation: A Symposium

Trinity College, Oxford

2 November 2018

This one-day symposium is the first of four events hosted by the AHRC-funded ‘Decadence and Translation Network’. It has a twofold aim:

  • to explore specific case studies of how British Decadent writers engaged with translation at the Victorian fin de siècle;
  • to discuss, more broadly, how theories and practices of translation inform our cultural and stylistic understanding of the concept of Decadence.

Participants will be invited to address these issues in a series of papers, responses and roundtable discussions. Our aim is to maximise the opportunities for conversation and exchange.

Plenary Speakers for this event include Emeritus Professor Clive Scott and Professor Ann Jamison.

Places for this event are limited and by invitation only. Check back on this site for information about discussions and debate.
