Vacancy for a PhD student to work on Translation and Francoism at Ghent University

Our colleagues of the research group Translation and Culture at Ghent University seek to recruit a PhD fellow (doctoral candidate) for a project on Translation and Francoism (2020-2024), under supervision of Professor Jeroen Vandaele.

Summary

Between 1939 and 1975 Francisco Franco’s administration held a tight control over public discourse in Spain. This project studies the role of translation during Francoism. A site of tension and censorship under Franco, translation throws light on cultural struggle and on the values, practices, and institutions that Francoism—or sectors of the regime—defended and opposed in various times and places. The project is currently looking for a research proposal about translation between Spanish and, preferably, (one of) the following languages: French, English, Dutch, German, Norwegian, Danish, or Swedish.
