>Translators, Interpreters, Mediators: Women Writers 1700-1900
>
>Proposals are invited for papers for an interdisciplinary study day to be
>held at Chawton House Library on the 11th of March 2006. Chawton House is
>an Elizabethan Manor that once belonged to Jane Austenís brother, and
>opened in July 2003 as a Centre for the Study of Early English Womenís
>Writing, 1600 - 1830. The event is jointly organised by Chawton House
>Library, the University of Southampton English Department, and the project
>ìThe International Reception of Womenís Writingî (Research Institute for
>History and Cultures of Utrecht University, The Netherlands).
>
>Recent research has focused on the expanding literary market-place as the
>eighteenth and nineteenth centuries progressed, and in particular on
>European exchanges in a period which saw the ëfixingí of national
>identities. Scholars are beginning to investigate the part women played
>within this context. In the course of this study day we shall concentrate
>on the activities of women as translators, interpreters and mediators in
>the period 1700-1900. We invite papers that address any issue suggested by
>our conference title and which discuss texts produced in any European
>language which were then ëimportedí into another culture by women writers
>(a focus on European literatures other than French and English will be
>welcomed, although papers must be presented in one of these languages). We
>would be particularly interested to see proposals that make use of the
>resources in the ìWomenWritersî database developed by the Utrecht project,
>and of the approach suggested by the framework it provides.
>
>Please send a 250 word abstract, in English or French, for papers of no more
>than 20 minutes to Gillian Dow [log in to unmask] and Suzan van Dijk
>[log in to unmask] by the 1st of November 2005.
