From Eald to New: Translating Early Medieval Poetry for the 21st Century

Welcome to the website of the Eald to New network, a project based at University College Cork, and investigating the translation of early medieval poetry from the Old English, Old Norse and Old Irish traditions. The network will be launched with a poetry event on 5 June, followed by a two day conference ‘From Eald to New: Translating Early Medieval Poetry for the 21st Century’, bringing together leading academics and creative practitioners to advance our understanding of the practical, theoretical and socio-cultural aspects of the translation of early medieval poetry. This project is funded by an Irish Research Council ‘New Foundations’ Grant, as well as generous support from the Society for the Study of Medieval Languages and Literature (SSMLL), the School of English and the Information Services Strategic Fund at UCC, and the Forum for Medieval and Renaissance Studies in Ireland (FMRSI). The project is led by Dr Tom Birkett and Dr Kirsty March-Lyons of the School of English.
