This conference brings together leading academics and creative practitioners to advance our understanding of the practical,theoretical and socio-cultural aspects of the translation of early medieval. poetry

This conference brings together literary and academic translators working with Old Irish, Old English and Old Norse Poetry to discuss the translations of medieval texts into modern languages. It explores the ideology of translation, the subtleties of the translation process, and the teaching of translation in modern university settings in relation to memory, adaptation and remediation. It also examines the cultural and historical inflection of individual translations, the ways in which the student’s experience of medieval literature is affected by the translation adopted for study, and the particular challenges related to the translation and reception of early medieval vernacular poetry.
