Many thanks to everybody who came to the Discussion Group last week - we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did! We hope to see many of you at our next meeting this coming Monday (5 March, 12.45-2pm, St Anne's, Seminar Room 10 on the top floor in the New Library). We're excited to have Adriana X. Jacobs, Associate Professor of Modern Hebrew Literature and a Fellow of the Oxford Centre for Hebrew and Jewish Studies, as our guest. As always, no advance preparation is needed, and free sandwich lunch, fruit and coffee will be provided.
Also, don’t forget that Close-reading a Global Novel across Languages: Prismatic Jane Eyre takes place on Friday 2 March; 5:14-7:15 in Seminar Room 10 at St Anne’s College. The seminar will look at how Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre has fared across languages, specifically modern Greek, Polish, Hebrew, Arabic, and the Romance languages. The seminar aims to air material from the AHRC-funded Prismatic Translation project and offer new ways of thinking about multiple translations. A cluster of brief presentations by the participants will open onto discussion. Prismatic Translation is part of the AHRC - OWRI Creative Multilingualism research programme, and is hosted by OCCT. All welcome!
