For anybody who missed our BARS Digital Event,Radical Connections: A Digital Show and Tell – you can now catch up on the whole thing on the official BARS Youtube channel. This roundtable bridged 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 featured 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 included 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).
