'Splendid Innovations' conference on screen translation history, London 21-22 May 2015

I am, as my countrymen are wont to say, excira' an' delira' to say that registration is open for the British Academy Conference

'Splendid Innovations': The Development, Reception 
and Preservation of Screen Translation'

organised by myself and the distinguished French researcher Jean-François Cornu, author of the recently published Le doublage et le sous-titrage: Histoire et esthétique.

The conference website, draft programme and details of how to register are here.

As you'll see from the conference website, it brings together an extraordinary combination of experts in film archiving, film history and translation. This has been made possible through the wonderful generosity of the British Academy who are funding the conference and who are organising it at their beautiful homeplace at Carlton House Terrace. We literally can't wait!

The conference will also include a public event about the history of screen translation, featuring the distinguished Japanese benshi Kataoka Ichiro (more information here).

Please feel free to contact me at carol.osullivan at if you have any questions about these events.
