Organizers: Tanya Zhelezcheva (Queensborough Community College) and Sabina Amanbayeva (Rowan University)
The panel invites papers that focus on modern translations of English Renaissance literature, including Shakespeare, into other languages. What can we learn by studying the way canonical English authors, such as Shakespeare or Milton, were translated and appropriated in other cultures? What does "Shakespeare" (or other authors) stand for in different contexts? How can translation serve as a tool of critique or propaganda?
The panel welcomes papers that engage translations as well as adaptations of early modern English literature into other languages and cultures.
Please submit the following both to Sabina Amanbayeva (email@example.com) and Tanya Zhelezcheva (TZhelezcheva@qcc.cuny.edu) by June 5.
