1. About the event
This two-day event focuses on material and digital cultures, and textual transmission, promoting conversations about how we conceptualise, encounter and research materials and materiality in translation studies. The event provides a space for exploring concepts of materiality in relation to invention, circulation, performance and interpretation, and considers questions such as:

◦how do current understandings of materiality in translation studies shape our approach to research design?
◦how can conversations in the digital humanities illuminate understandings of translation studies scholars’ relationships with materials, meaning and transmission?
◦how do different types of encounter with materials help to produce different ways of knowing?
The event involves scholars who work on issues of materiality and translation, with expertise ranging from medieval manuscripts and early printed books to digital culture and audiovisual formats. These will be accompanied over the two days by presentations from PhD students and early career researchers, a roundtable on the digital humanities and a workshop on the development and application of research methods relevant to the themes of the event.
