OCCT Discussion Group 2019-2020
Given the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to move our events online.
In Trinity Term 2020, we will meet digitally via Microsoft Teams on Mondays of even weeks (week 2: 4 May, week 4: 18 May, week 6: 1 June, week 8: 15 June) at 1pm-2pm. The Week 4 Discussion Group will coincide with an Oxford Translation Day event, Parwana Fayyaz's poetry reading.
The sessions will require registration: if you want to participate, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org specifying in the subject line which event you would like to attend, and you will receive an invitation to the meeting. Select Join Microsoft Teams Meeting in your meeting invite to be taken to a page where you can choose to either join on the web or download the desktop app. If you already have the Teams app, the meeting will open there automatically.
Registrations are now open for the following events:
Monday Week 6 (1 June) : Dramaturgy, Translation, and Reception around/in Aeschylus’ Agamemnon
Monday Week 8 (15 June) : Translation and the Zsolnay Publishing House, 1924-1938
To register please email: email@example.com with either the subject line: "Week 6 - Discussion Group registration" or "Week 8 - Discussion Group registration".
The Discussion Group is open to everyone who is interested in topics related to Comparative Criticism and Translation Studies. No knowledge of languages other than English or familiarity with translation studies is required to participate, and there will be no preparatory readings circulated in advance.
If you would be interested in facilitating one of the Discussion Group sessions, or suggesting a text or topic for discussion, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that the Discussion Group is a dynamic forum for exchanging and debating ideas in an informal setting. As such, the introduction by a facilitator is not a formal presentation, but, rather, a prompt to the collective discussion.
The Discussion Group’s current conveners are Mariachiara Leteo, Yousif M. Qasmiyeh and Anna Saroldi. If you would like to join our mailing list, please send a blank email to email@example.com.
We look forward to welcoming you on 4 May,
OCCT DG Co-Convenors, Mariachiara, Yousif and Anna
