Since the beginning of the 21st century, the literary practices of multilingual writers have gained increasing interest among researchers and have been discussed in terms of translingual literature (see Kellman 2000), language memoirs (see Nic Craith 2012) and questions of identity (see Besemeres 2002). An increasing number of multilingual writers have chosen to self-translate their works, thus writing the same text in different languages. While the practice of self-translation has a very long and rich tradition and continues to be widespread around the globe, for a long time it did not receive much critical attention within literary and translation studies.

Passion, Power, and Rhetoric: Latin Influences on Early Drama


The twenty-fourth International Medieval Congress will take place in Leeds, UK, from 3-6 July 2017.  The IMC seeks to provide an interdisciplinary forum for the discussion of all aspects of Medieval Studies. However, every year, the IMC chooses a special thematic strand which – for 2017 – is ‘Otherness’. This focus has been chosen for its wide application across all centuries and regions and its impact on all disciplines devoted to this epoch.

In the Holzwege version of “Der Spruch des Anaximander,” Martin Heidegger advances the need to translate oneself prior to undertaking any translation of early Greek thinking (303). At the level of perception Nietzsche locates foundational moments of translation (Übertragungen) at each stage of the movement from stimulation to concept-formation (Über Wahrheit und Lüge §1: 312-17).
