Simona Bertacco’s seminar on ‘GLOBAL’

We are pleased to announce Simona Bertacco’s seminar on the keyword GLOBAL as part of the BA courses in English Culture. This is but one of the many seminars organised by CHAIN, so keep updated by reading the section NEWS.


The speaker:

Simona Bertacco is an Associate Professor of Postcolonial Studies in the Department of Comparative Humanities and is an affiliate member of the Department of Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies. She began her academic career at the University of Milan, in Italy, and joined the University of Louisville in 2011.

Her research focuses on postcolonial literatures, women’s translingual writing, and on the effects of translation on postcolonial literatures. In particular, she is interested in the ways in which language and translation are used in the postcolonial literary text and in the forms of readerly participation that linguistically complex texts create. She is currently working on a co-authored book on translation and migration.
