Drama Translation in the Age of Globalisation: Paradoxes and Paradigms
Salford, UK; March 6, 2013
The reflexion on drama translation resonates with the theme of ‘Memory, Text and Place’ identified by the University of Salford as one of the strategic interdisciplinary themes. The proposed symposium is expected to be of particular interest to researchers and practitioners within the field of drama translation, translation studies, cultural studies, drama, performing arts and visual culture. We would especially welcome papers from drama translators of minority languages or cultures, and from researchers with insights into the way the discourse of translation and intercultural studies, in the age of globalisation, might impact on and shape the production of foreign plays in translation.

Whether we turn to new digital platforms to disguise our secret Mills and Boon habit or to display our technological skills, these new forms have already changed the ways in which we consume and experience literature. In dialogue with the printed book, the e-book has been instrumental in generating debate, new writings and innovative content and has enriched our literary experience in the twenty-first century. At present the two co-exist, but how long until the e coup?
