Framing Texts: PGR Workshop
30 May 2018 9.30am-4.30pm
Verdon Smith Room (Royal Fort House), University of Bristol
Framing Texts is a postgraduate workshop organised by the Centre for Material Texts at the University of Bristol. This one-day event aims to create a friendly space in which postgraduates and early career researchers can share current research thoughts and engender a conversation with established scholars on the theme of material texts.
Our informal study-day comprises two sessions. The morning round-table is dedicated to translation and paratexts, and it is followed by a lecture given by Dr. Carol O’Sullivan (University of Bristol) at 11.30am. Carol is a Senior Lecturer in Translation studies working on literary translation as well as audiovisual translation, film history, and film translation history. We find her work on the representation of translation in paratexts inspirational, and we are really glad that she will tell us more about her work, and answer some of our research questions. The afternoon round-table focuses on film and television paratexts, and it is followed by a lecture given by Dr. Phil Wickham (University of Exeter) at 3.30pm. Phil is the curator of the Bill Douglas Cinema Museum in Exeter. We are very pleased that he will come to Bristol and give a talk about the importance of ephemera in the study of film and television texts.
During the morning and afternoon round-table there will be plenty of space for discussion. We welcome all postgraduates to give a mini 10-15 minute presentation about their research projects. You can notify us about your intention to present by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Our workshop is open to everybody.
