Location: Moore Institute Seminar Room, NUIG
You are cordially invited to the launch of
L'Identité de genre dans les oeuvres de George Sand et Colette by
Marion Krauthaker (Paris, L'Harmattan, 2011). Krauthaker is a member of the Gender, Discourse and Identity
research cluster of Gender ARC.
The book will be introduced by Dr Sylvie Lannegrand, Lecturer in French (NUI, Galway). This monograph discloses how George Sand and Colette's writings, not only
addressed women's emancipation, but also introduced avant-garde presentations of
gender identity. At a time when this concept was still not theorized, Sand and
Colette were already engaged in denunciating patriarchal codes as constraining
factors preventing the development of a range of possible psycho-gender and
sexual positions for men and women.
Also being launched at the same event is...
Audiovisual Translation. Subtitles and Subtitling by Laura
Incalcaterra McLoughlin, Marie Biscio, Maire Aine Ni Mhainnin (eds) (Oxford:
Peter Lang, 2011)
Introduced by Dr John Kearns, Irish Translators and Interpreters Association.
The volume addresses issues relating to AVT research and didactics. The first
section is dedicated to theoretical aspects in order to stimulate further debate
and encourage progress in research-informed teaching. The second section focuses
on a less developed area of research in the field of AVT: its potential use in
foreign language pedagogy.
