Working with our theme fellows, AHRC has organised five events at the prestigious 2018 Cheltenham Literature Festival, including two that focus on East Asia as part of this year’s festival theme, East Meets West.
Programmed in collaboration with the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC). The RSC’s Shakespeare Folio Translation Project brings two languages and cultures together to produce new Mandarin translations of Shakespeare’s plays. Those involved discuss how they conveyed the essence of the original text in collaboration with their Chinese cast.
For more information visit the Translating Shakespeare in China webpage.
Leading authors and translators celebrate the art and power of translation.

Hansard is the public record of the UK’s Houses of Parliament. But how is it written, who reads it, and what does it tell us the changing language of government? Features the AHRC’s Professor Andrew Prescott, Theme Leadership Fellow for Digital Transformations.

In the Western world we have very few words to describe the texture of food, while the Japanese have hundreds. Take part in a delicious and thought-provoking lunch with Professor Barry Smith, the AHRC’s Theme Leadership Fellow for Science in Culture.

Is it ever too late to learn a new language, and how does language acquisition benefit the brain at any age? Features the AHRC’s Professor Charles Forsdick, Theme Leadership Fellow for Translating Cultures.
