Translation: A Very Short Introduction
Thursday 30 March 2017
Oxford University Press is proud to return to the FT Weekend Oxford Literary Festival with another series of soap box talks from the very short introductions series. These free, 15-minute talks feature expert authors from the series and take place twice a day in the Blackwell’s Marquee, next to the Sheldonian Theatre.
English lecturer Matthew Reynolds gives an authoritative and thought-provoking account of the practice of translation, from ancient Akkadian to World English, from St Jerome to Google Translate.
