Philip Ford Annual Postgraduate Day: Neo-Latin and the Vernacular

Philip Ford Annual Postgraduate Day: Neo-Latin and the Vernacular
10 Oct 2020, 12:30 to 10 Oct 2020, 18:00

The Society for Neo-Latin Studies is delighted to announce that the postponed Philip Ford Annual Postgraduate Day will take place virtually on 10 October 2020. The event, which will be hosted by the Warburg Institute, will focus on Neo-Latin and the vernacular. There will be an interactive session on bilingual writing/self-translation in the early modern period led by Dr Sara Miglietti and a talk by Professor Ingrid de Smet on methodology in translating Neo-Latin texts. Additionally, there will be three panels with paper presentations by postgraduates and early career researchers (see the programme below). We hope the event will provide a good opportunity for MA students and postgraduate, post-doctoral and early career researchers to find out more about Neo-Latin projects, discuss ideas, and meet other scholars in the discipline.
