Translation in History

4 October 2013

The first 2013-2014 Translation in History event at UCL in the Anatomy Building: Anatomy Gavin de Beer Lecture Theatre

Thursday 10 October, 6-7.30 pm: Professor Gesine Manuwald (UCL): Latin as a language of translation in Elizabethan England

Translating from and into Latin in 16th- and 17th-century England was an exercise to create linguistic fluency, but also to make writings available to a larger number of readers. This lecture by Professor Gesine Manuwald (UCL Greek and Latin) will shed light on translation practices and the educational context in the Elizabethan period.

This lecture series is supported by the Faculty Institute of Graduate Studies.
