Philosophical Translation(s) in the Renaissance

Posted By David A. Lines, Wednesday, May 3, 2017

An understudied aspect in the growing field of Renaissance translation is whether and how the approach to translation was different in philosophy from other fields such as literature. This panel is meant to address how Renaissance translators of philosophical works (including their own) saw their activity: whether as part of more general debates about the theory and practice of translation, or as a special case. Papers would be welcomed dealing with either vertical translation (e.g., Greek to Latin or Latin to vernacular) or horizontal translation (from one vernacular to the other). Ideally, papers would examine both an interpreter's explicit theoretical statements about translation and particular aspects of practice. 

Please send a 200 word abstract, a list of key words, and a brief CV (no more than 300 words) in a single Word document to the discipline representative for Philosophy, David Lines ( by Friday, 26 May 2017. See guidelines for CVs on the RSA’s annual meeting page.
