DescriptionThis roundtable gathers scholars of early modern translation to explore the textual, social, and material networks underlying the production and dissemination of translated texts in early modern Europe. Translation is by definition a networked activity, involving not only the connection between translators and their sources, but also a variety of human, textual, and material mediations, all impacting the production, circulation and reception of the "target" text. The roundtable aims to explore the variety of networks thus involved in translation: translators' social connections, circuits of production and dissemination of translated texts, textual and intertextual links, or again, literary and generic trajectories created through translation. The discussion will highlight the multifaceted nature of early modern translation as a networked process, and engage with critical approaches that are relevant to analyze it, from textual-material description to transnational, bird's-eye view mapping, and from comparative methodologies to the recent "network turn" in the digital humanities.
