Description

CLIV’s main line of research concerns the discursive presence or absence of the translation instance as it manifests itself on different levels (poetical, ideological, ethical,…) in certain areas of literary texts (such as paratexts, retranslations or adaptations) and, at the macro level, around the text (through translation sociological research or research into the relevance of translation for literary theoryas well as for literary history).
