The Author-Translator in the European Literary Tradition


Swansea University, 28 June - 1 July 2010


Keynote speakers: Susan Bassnett, David Constantine, Lawrence Venuti 


This major international conference seeks to reassess the importance of
translation for European writers - both well-known and less familiar -
from antiquity to the present day. It will explore why authors
translate, what they translate and how they translate, as well as the
links between an author's translation work and his or her own writing.
There will be almost eighty panels, on topics ranging from 'Theories of
Self-Translation' and 'Translation and Creativity' to 'Romantic
Pseudo-Translation' and 'Translating Children's Literature'. The
conference will thus map out the phenomenon of the author-translator in
Europe on a large scale for the first time. 


There will be a number of papers on modernist author-translators, such
as Ezra Pound, Katherine Mansfield and T. S. Eliot.
