Routledge seminar series: Siri Nergaard

At our fifth seminar, editor Michael Cronin will be in conversation with Siri Nergaard about her book Translation and Transmigration (Routledge 2021). In our globalized and transcultural world it has become more common than ever to live among different languages, to cross geographical and cultural borders frequently, to negotiate between multiple spaces and loyalties: from global businesspeople to guest workers, from tourists to refugees. Nergaard examines translation as a personal, intimate experience of a subject living in and among different languages and cultures and sees living in translation as a socio-psychological condition of transmigrancy with strong implications on emotions and behaviour.
Siri Nergaard teaches Norwegian at the University of Florence, and non-fiction writing at the University of South-Eastern Norway. In the past she has taught translation studies on the Masters Programme in Publishing at the University of Bologna.She is author and editor of several books on translation, mostly in Italian, and has served as editor-in-chief of the journal translation: a transdisciplinary journal.
Booking details will be posted here in early September.
