PhD seminar on “Translation and Cultural Transfer”

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.
