PhD scholarship "The Reception of Foreign Literatures in British Romantic Periodicals" Leuven Belgium,
Posted on : 19 June 2017
Project This project pursues a quantitative, critical and comparative analysis of the reception and translation of non-British cultures in major British Romantic periodicals that dominated the literary, cultural, scientific and economic debates in Britain during the first two decades of the 19th century. Key questions that will be addressed are: what is the position of foreign texts/cultures in these periodicals, to what extent are they indicative of a transnational function and orientation of these periodicals, and how are they integrated in the larger ideological strategies of the latter? Addressing a largely neglected dimension of British Romantic periodical culture, the project combines methodological insights from reception studies, periodical studies, sociology of literature and discourse analysis, and cultural transfer and translation studies.
