Towards a Genetics of Translation. Interdisciplinary and international perspectives

Taking the audience from Paris to Brazil, and from Brazil to Antwerp, the symposium aims to highlight interdisciplinary pathways situated at the crossroads of Genetic Criticism and Translation Studies. The invited speakers, international scholars engaged in mutual collaborations in this rapidly evolving academic field, will give insight in how to study the creative process of  authors/translators by analyzing  manuscripts or digital texts.
