The TORCH Oxford Comparative Criticism and Translation programme are hosting an event on 'Close-Reading a Global Novel Across Languages: Prismatic Jane Eyre'

What does it mean to close-read a global novel? This seminar will explore the question, airing material from the AHRC-funded Prismatic Translation project and offering new ways of thinking about multiple translations. A cluster of brief presentations by the participants will open onto discussion. 
[Prismatic Translation is part of the AHRC - OWRI Creative Multilingualism research programme, and is hosted by OCCT]
