Radical Connections: A Digital Show and Tell

24 March 2022, 5pm GMT Rescheduled due to UCU Strike Action: now 28 April 2022, 5pm GMT 

This roundtable will attempt to bridge the two fields of revolutionary politics and transnational cultural exchange by looking at the circulation of radical texts in translation, not only across the Channel but also to and from Italian. It will feature exploratory research conducted by the team of the AHRC-funded project ‘Radical Translations: The Transfer of Revolutionary Culture between Britain, France and Italy (1789-1815)’, which has unearthed ca. 800 translations of texts seeking to extend ideas of equality and rights to new publics across linguistic, social, and geographical borders.

Our speakers include Sanja Perovic (King’s College London), Rosa Mucignat (King’s College London), Nigel Ritchie (King’s College London), Will Bowers (Queen Mary University of London).
