“Theaters of Translation: Dictionaries, Drama, and Shakespeare’s World of Words”

Thursday 6 May 2021

6-7.30pm (CEST)

Andrew S. Keener specializes in early modern literature, theater and drama, book history, and digital approaches to the humanities. He is currently writing a book entitled Theaters of Translation: Cosmopolitan Vernaculars in Shakespeare’s England. Based on his doctoral thesis, which was awarded the 2019 J. Leeds Barroll Dissertation Prize by the Shakespeare Association of America, Theaters of Translation examines how bilingual and multilingual dictionaries, grammars, and conversation guides published in Renaissance England shaped and were shaped by cosmopolitan dramatic works by playwrights such as William Shakespeare, Mary Sidney Herbert, and Ben Jonson.

This session is a collaboration between Modernités Britanniques (COMOD / ENS de Lyon), the research group Confluences (CREA, Paris Nanterre), and the “Translation and Polyglossia in Early Modern England” project (https://tape1617.hypotheses.org/ – Institut Universitaire de France).
