Conf: The Wrong Direction

Tübingen, 13/04/2023 – 15/04/2023

The Philological Institute at Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen is happy to share the program of the conference “The Wrong Direction – Early Modern Translations into Latin”, which will take place April 13–15, 2023, at Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen.

Based on the research done in Prof. Dr. Anja Wolkenhauer’s project Versio Latina, the conference wants to use this opportunity to decidedly change perspectives and look ‘into the wrong direction,’ namely focusing on early modern translations into Latin. What are their functions? Who translated and for what kind of readership; which expectations were placed on these translations by translators, editors, and printer-publishers? Were they successful, reprinted, or overruled by rival products, or was their efficiency augmented by being intermediary versions for translations into other languages?

For your questions please contact Dr. Julia Heideklang:
