Each week we will introduce one of the keynote speakers for the ENIS/MIDA Summer School “Spoken Images of/in Islam: Languages and Translations in Texts and Images,” which takes place from 5-9 July 2021.
The first speaker we will introduce you to is dr. Helge Daniëls (KU Leuven). During this Summer School she will give a lecture on “The imaginative power of book covers: Translation, gender and the postcolonial gaze.”
Helge Daniëls is assistant professor at the Research Group of Arabic Studies at KU Leuven. She teaches Arabic, Arabic literature, Arabic sociolinguistics and the translation of Arabic literary and media texts. Her current research can be summarized under the title ‘The Arabic language: language, power and identity’ and is situated within the fields of ideology study and linguistic pragmatics. This research line, which focuses on the relationship between language variability and identity construction, is by definition situated at the crossroads of the study of language, politics, history, literature and religion.
Application for the Summer School is possible until 1 April 2021.
