Centre for Translating Cultures
Dr Eliana Maestri’s research focuses on the interplay between translation and text-based art. She works in collaboration with artist Valeria Brancaforte on representations of languages as optical experiences. Brancaforte produced artist book “Languages in motion” to celebrate the 2019 Exeter Translation Festival.
The Centre provides a context to draw together work on ‘Translating Cultures’ within the University. We interpret translating cultures broadly and explore migrations, border-crossing, exile, diaspora, adaptation, intermediality and multimedia from the 1100s to the present day.
