“From Romance to Romance: Translating among Medieval and Early Modern Romance Vernacular Texts (13th-18th c.),” is a two-day conference focusing on the many cross-influences among Romance literatures and cultures from the Middle Ages through more recent times, with special attention to the topic of translation. More than 25 international scholars will examine different aspects of the circulation of vernacular works via translations from one Romance language to another, from the 13th to the 18th century, in Europe and beyond. Employing an eclectic range of interests and approaches, their talks will cover translations among the following Romance languages and variants: Aragonese, Catalan, Franco-Italian, French, Galician-Portuguese, Italian, Judeo-Spanish, Ladino, Navarrese, Occitan, Spanish and Tagalog.
