WHY SHOULD I ATTEND?
This one-day conference is dedicated to exploring the theme of ‘exile’ in its widest sense in the context of translating modern and contemporary Hispanic literature: from the language of self-exile of Juan Goytisolo to the language of political exile of César Vallejo and the theme of the exiled body in contemporary Spanish poets. The conference will bring together scholars, translators, writers, publishers and others from a variety of different backgrounds and interests to consider representations of exile and how translators respond to these in their own ‘languages’.
