Programme for Translation Conference in UCD 20.10.2018

UCD Conference in Literary Translation 

A way in for the world: Irish literary translation at home and abroad

 

20 October  |    9am - 4pm   |    A209, Newman Building, UCD

Minority language communities live on the border between languages and translation often acts as a door between these languages. This conference will allow researchers and professional practicioners in the field of translation to come together and analyse the role of translation to and from Irish since the Revival, the process of translation and the literary connections between Ireland and mainland Europe. Of special interest will be the recent literary translations of the famous novel Cré na Cille  by Máirtín Ó Cadhain. The novel is available in 8 European languages to date and five of the translators will be with us on the day to shed new light on this complex text by discussing the challenges involved in translating the novel.

Our kind thanks to UCD Seed Funding and Ciste125 Bliain na Gaeilge for supporting the event.
