Announcing our Keynote Speakers

We are really excited to announce that we have not one but two amazing keynote speakers at the Ponying the Slovos conference next month.

Professor Andrew Biswell of Manchester Metropolitan University, a world authority on Anthony Burgess who authored A Clockwork Orange, will deliver a keynote lecture situating Nadsat in the context of Burgess’s oeuvre.

Additionally, Dr Marion Winters, who is Senior Lecturer in Translation Studies and German at Heriot-Watt University, will deliver a keynote lecture on corpus-based translation studies, focusing on parallel corpora  and translator style and creativity.

If you’d like to hear these eminent scholars, as well as a full day of fascinating papers from researchers from three continents, covering a fascinating range of topics relating to translation and invented languages, register (for free!) today to attend the symposium at http://www.coventry.ac.uk/ponyingtheslovos2016
