The Pacific Northwest Renaissance Society invites papers examining all aspects of translation and transmission in and of the Renaissance for its conference to be held from October 18th to 21st, 2012 in Abbotsford, British Columbia, sponsored by the University of the Fraser Valley. Papers might consider, for instance,

  • the art / practice of textual translation and transmission in the Renaissance

  • the political and ethical implications of translation in and of the early modern period
  • endangered languages and translation in the Renaissance
  • physical acts of translation, such as the remaking of new clothes from old clothes, or other forms of material translation / “carrying across” or transformation
  • the "translation" and “transmission” of early modern texts in manuscript, print and electronic media from the late sixteenth-century onward 
  • translating, transmitting, and teaching the Renaissance in the (post)modern classroom
  • diaspora and translation in the early modern period
  • “translating” and/or “transmitting” the Renaissance in the digital age
  • the untranslatable Renaissance/early modern untranslatabilty
