Title: 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.


Lectures are free to attend but booking is recommended.
