Literatures of Multilingual Europe

Literatures of multilingual Europe was a series of lectures given at the Taylor Institution Library in Autumn 2018 and Summer 2019 designed to accompany the Bodleian Exhibition 'Babel: adventures in translation' (15th February - 2nd June 2019). Each lecture was intended to provide an introduction to some of the less well-known European literatures and at the same time to showcase library holdings both in the original and in translation as well as works of criticism. The lectures were accompanied by a bibliography and a display of books from the Taylor Institution and the Bodleian Libraries.
