“Transnationalizing Modern Languages: Mobility, Identity and Translation in Modern Italian Cultures”
Monash University will be a key partner with the University of Warwick in a new research project which was awarded £1.8million in September by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) in the United Kingdom. Established research links between the Warwick Chief Investigators, Loredana Polezzi and Jennifer Burns, and researchers in Translation and Italian Studies at Monash University played a central role in the successful outcome of the application entitled, “Transnationalizing Modern Languages: Mobility, Identity and Translation in Modern Italian Cultures”.
Rita Wilson has been nominated as the Chair of the Project’s Advisory Board and will also act as the research supervisor for the Warwick Research Assistants based at Monash. “I am very excited about the prospect of working on this ambitious transnational project which brings together a team of researchers from universities across the UK and external partners from Africa and the Americas The project is highly innovative and transformative in both scope and methodology.”
The project (led by Prof Charles Burdett, University of Bristol) looks at the Italian communities established in the UK, the US, Australia, South America, Africa and at the migrant communities of contemporary Italy. It will focus on the cultural associations that each community has formed and will examine the impact different types of linguistic and cultural translation have on notions of national identity. The AHRC awarded the grant under their Translating Cultures theme, to address the need for better understanding and communication between and across diverse cultures.
Since 2009 the School has been actively collaborating with the University of Warwick with successful outcomes including collaboration in the areas of Mobility and Migration, Cultural and Linguistic Translation and the Joint Doctoral Program.
