The Australian and New Zealand Association for Medieval and Early Modern Studies (ANZAMEMS) is holding its Ninth Biennial Conference on 12-16 February 2013 at the Caulfield Campus of Monash University in Melbourne. The theme of the conference is ‘Cultures in Translation’ in order to explore the many varieties of translation at work in medieval and early modern studies. Papers will deal with diversity and change in areas such as language, culture, religion, space. They will examine how medieval and early modern cultures understood translation and how modern scholars make disciplinary, linguistic and social translations in their work.
The keynote speakers are: Chris Baswell (Columbia University), Anne Dunlop (Tulane University), John Najemy (Cornell University) and Charles Zika (University of Melbourne). You can find the full conference programme here.
