Reading Group

Here is our provisional reading schedule for 2018/2019. Please bear in mind that changes may occur depending on events and other commitments. If you would like to take part in our sessions or add your comments to our collective annotated documents, please contact us.

Our readings will be directly connected with our forthcoming conference Performing Translation: Translatorship in the 21st Century, and will thus be related to Translation, Communication, and Performance from different perspectives.
