Abstract

Why. Translation. Studies. needs. the. medieval. There are two main reasons why I think the academic discipline of Translation Studies should be paying more attention to European medieval translation practices. The first is clear enough from the above: we are in the midst of a major change in communication technologies, and a long time frame is needed in order to appreciate the profundity and possible consequences of that change.
