The book Translation and Multimodality: Beyond Words, edited by MMLL Faculty colleagues Monica Boria (Italian), Ángeles Carreres (Spanish) and María Noriega-Sánchez (Spanish), and Marcus Tomalin (Trinity Hall) has been recently published by Routledge.

It is one of the first ever book-length studies of how translation needs to be redefined and reconfigured in contexts where multiple modes of communication and meaning-making are simultaneously involved (e.g., words, images, movement, gesture, music). It contains chapters written by world-leading experts in translation theory and multimodality, and each one explores the interconnections between these related, yet all-too-often distinct, disciplines.

A book launch will be held on Monday, 27th January 2020, 5.30-6.30pm at CRASSH, Alison Richard Building, Seminar Room SG1 & Atrium.

Join the editors in conversation with Professor Helena Sanson. A drinks reception will follow in the foyer. The event is free and open to all. No booking required.
