Translating Illness

What do medicine and translation have in common? In what sense, and to what extent, is translation used in contexts as different as the transfer of meaning from one language (or medium) to the other, the concept of knowledge translation, and the process of protein synthesis? How will a nuanced understanding of translation help us advance in literary and linguistic studies as well as in clinical research? In a newly-launched seminar series taking place at The Queen’s College, Oxford, we will explore these questions in an interdisciplinary way, with the aim to endorse, promote and even inspire translation outside our area of expertise, and our common understanding.

All welcome and no booking is required.
