Translating Freedom workshop

Monday 1 July 2013, 9.15AM to 3 July 2013

The workshop is the final event linked to an Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHCR) network grant on the theme of 'translating freedom', which funded workshops in Rwanda, South Africa, and Egypt during 2012. The grant was secured from an AHRC funding stream focusing on 'translating cultures'. The aim of such network grants is to develop topics and research teams to take forward collaborative, and often interdisciplinary, research.

Three main themes have emerged from our country workshops:

  • vernacularising human rights and law
  • marginalised groups in times of transition e.g. refugees
  • translating ethics: documenting the past

The aim of the July workshop will be to discuss and develop possible future research collaborations.

Please note that this is a closed workshop. Non-speakers wishing to attend should contact Paul Gready ( to see if places are available.
