Translation and Literature is a major strength at Glasgow.  The leading journal in this area, Translation and Literature, is edited from the School, and its editor Stuart Gillespie is also General Editor of the five-volume Oxford History of Literary Translation in English, the last volume of which appeared in 2013.  The School has distinctive expertise in translation from Greek and Arabic, and we have good links, through our School of Modern Languages and Cultures, with translation from the major western European languages (French, German, Spanish and the Slavonic languages), and in comparative literature.  2012 saw the first Work-in-Progress Translation Season, organised by the School’s Translation Studies Postgraduate Research Network.
