Eco-Translation: Responding to the Work of Michael Cronin
14-15 May 2021
This two-day online conference focuses on the work of our keynote speaker, the influential Irish translation theorist Michael Cronin. Leading UK and international scholars of translation, eco-criticism and environmental studies will be addressing issues highlighted in Cronin’s recent work, in particular Eco-Translation: Translation and Ecology in the Age of the Anthropocene (Routledge, 2017). Cronin’s book explores the challenges to translation posed by human-induced environmental change, with topics ranging from the translation of travel literature to endangered languages and inter-species communication.
The conference is co-organised by the British Centre for Literary Translation and the School of Politics, Philosophy, Language and Communication Studies at UEA.
