Special Thematic Strand:
Medieval Translations and Their Readership

Papers are dealing with the reader as the socio-cultural node of each translation activity. The focus is on the role of the reader in the process of translation, on the communities of readers and on their active participation in translators' choices, as well as on the relationship of texts and their recipients in general and on the translation as a result of a dialogue between text and reader.
