AGM, Networking Luncheon and talk by John Whittaker.
After a PhD on the translation of the Latin Vulgate into French Romantic poetry, John Whittaker taught for 34 years in schools and higher education before becoming mainly a technical translator. As well as teaching French, he trained language teachers and taught and examined the MA in Translation Studies in three universities. He gained an interest in literary translation through contributing four entries to The Encyclopedia of Literary Translation into English (2000). From 2000 to 2003 he was a member of the University of Hull Drama Department, working on the project ‘Translation and the British Stage’ funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Board.
