Summary

We welcome proposals for papers for the following conference: 'Lost in Translation? The Theory and Practice of Translation in the Middle Ages', to be held at the University of Lausanne, Switzerland, 17-22 July, 2007.

Announcement

We welcome not only proposals for papers which address traditional aspects of translation of texts with reference to any of the classical, Middle Eastern or vernacular languages of the medieval world, but also those which address the modern translation of medieval texts, and those that interpret the idea of translation more broadly, examining the translation of ideas, images, cultural perceptions, or objects of material culture.

Papers may be given in English or in any of the national languages of Switzerland, and should be 30 minutes long. Please send one-page abstracts and brief curriculum vitae by 31 August, 2006, to
