Victorian Medievalism: Translation and Adaptation

Thursday, July 7, 2016 - 10:00am
The 52nd International Congress on Medieval Studies. May 11-14, 2017. Kalamazoo, Michigan.
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 15, 2016

This session seeks proposals which intend to explore Victorian translations of medieval texts as the transmission of cultural capital and as acts of transformation. More specifically, papers might address some of the following questions: how did Victorians adapt medieval texts to their own ideologies? How were medieval texts adapted into original compositions? How did Victorians approach translation and what does that reveal? How did Victorians think of faithfulness to the text? To the audience? What role did non-British scholars play in translating medieval texts into English (for example, Guðbrandur Vigfússon’s role in George Webbe Dasent’s translations, or Eiríkur Magnússon’s in William Morris’s output and thinking)?

Why religion got it all wrong? Conceptualizing new methods of reading.


Literary scholars need to throw open the doors of what texts constitute the study of literari-ness and the methods of doing so; such an act will allow the discipline to examine and interrogate socio-discursive practices which affect the lives of women all over the world.  Religious texts codify culture and gender norms and it is imperative that literary scholars engage with these texts that perpetuate and maintain oppressive hegemonic institutions.

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.

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).
