Channelling proto-feminist mystics, writing in-situ, writing colour and theopoetics, this event will create a space for thinking about translation in its widest sense, sending crossing signals between languages, cultures, concepts and registers.
Maria Fusco will discuss her new strand of research into anchorites – proto-feminist mystics – inspired and informed by her time at Sweeney’s Bothy, Isle of Eigg; Joyce Dixon will talk about Abraham Gottlob Werner’s 1814 book Nomenclature of Colours.
Event in collaboration with Bricks from the Kiln journal and Dr Natalie Ferris & Dr Rebecca Collins, University of Edinburgh.
