MHRA funding for Claudia Rossignoli

19 May 2020

Dr Claudia Rossignoli has been awarded of an MHRA conference grant for her forthcoming conference ‘Translating the Early Modern World: Transnational Cultures and Material Journeys Across Vernaculars’.

This conference will bring together an international group of researchers, working across language and disciplinary boundaries, on the cultural practices, material circumstances and transnational impact of early modern translation.

The main objective of this collaborative research is not just to map the intricate and mutual cultural exchanges between evolving vernaculars taking place in the Renaissance period. It especially aims to examine the transcultural impact of all translating practices to encourage a genuinely transnational understanding of early modern culture.
