Please find below an advertisement for a PhD seminar on “Translation and Cultural Transfer” which is being organised by our colleagues Anneleen Spiessens and Beatrijs Vanacker, respectively affiliated with Ghent University and KU Leuven, in collaboration with CLIV (Centrum voor Literatuur in Vertaling) and CERES (Centre for Reception Studies).


Diana-Roig-Sanz-1-333x444 Petra-Broomans-333x444“From 11 to 13 June 2019, a PhD course on “Translation and Cultural Transfer” will take place at Ghent University and KU Leuven/Campus Brussels. Keynote lecturers Diana Roig Sanz (Universitat Oberta de Catalunya) and Petra Broomans (Rijksuniversiteit Groningen) will present theoretical models and methods for analyzing intra- and extra-textual aspects of cultural transfer processes in peripheral multilingual contexts.

The course is conceived as an interactive seminar. It is a combination of ex-cathedra lectures, hands-on methodological workshops, tutorials/short presentations by doctoral researchers, discussions, and preliminary reading.

PhD students can apply by 20 May 2019 by sending a 500-word abstract of their presentation to anneleen.spiessens@ugent.be or beatrijs.vanacker@kuleuven.be. Call, full (preliminary) program and evaluation criteria are available here.

Post-docs and other university staff are welcome to attend lectures and discussions without actively participating. For practical reasons, we kindly ask you to register by e-mailing Anneleen or Beatrijs by 20 May.”
