About the Conference


The Translator Made Corporeal: Translation History in the Archive is a conference for academics, historians, translators, publishers, lovers of world literature and anyone else interested.

The conference, which will take place at the Knowledge Centre of the British Library on Monday, May 8, 2017, explores the current progress in studying the human, flesh-and-blood translator in a historical and cultural context. On this blog, we will archive materials for and from the conference, for conference attendees but also for those that can’t make it.
