The lecture cycle is devoted to the historical phenomenon of Czech-German bilingualism in the Czech lands and the current state of the German language in the Czech Republic. The presentations highlight the problem of language choice and change among Jewish writers in the 19th century, as well as the status of German as a minority language from a current and historical perspective. In addition, a study on the role of German as a mediating language in the translation of Czech literature into Spanish will be presented. The Institute of Translation Studies at Charles University is the oldest and most important Czech institution of its kind.
Speakers:Dr Tomáš Svoboda (head of the German department at the Institute of Translation Studies, Charles University), Dr Petra Mračková Vavroušová (teaches interpreting at Charles University), Dr Astrid Winter (research associate at the Institute of Slavonic Studies at Technische Universität Dresden)
The talk will be held in Czech and German.
