This Prismatic Jane Eyre website will be launched at an event at Oxford Translation Day, Friday 14 June, 5.15 – 7.15pm, St Anne’s College, Seminar Room 11. All welcome!
Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre is not only an English book: it exists in over fifty languages, in over five-hundred translations. How can we make sense of this multilingual cloud of writing? What can we do with it? Join Matthew Reynolds, Eleni Philippou, Kasia Szymanska and Yousif Qasmiyeh to explore the possibilities. You will follow many linguistic pathways and encounter several different Janes, all strangely different yet somehow the same.
