literature translation visibility of the translator
Project description

The researchers involved in this “Alliantieonderzoeksgroep” aim at identifying the textual units in literary translations that reflect the discursive presence or absence of the translator(s)in a clearly marked or relevant way; units studied include paratexts, specific sections of multilingual texts, self-translations, retranslations, the sociocultural frame of references etc. The research group further intends to explore how translation studies can significantly inform studies in literature and literary history.
