2020 - 2024 (ongoing)



In the 19th and 20th centuries, large amounts of readers were acquainted with foreign literature in their daily paper. Out of reach, gathering dust on library shelves and considered lowbrow literature this medium was until recently neglected. Thanks to digital archiving periodical studies are now gaining scholarly interest, although newspaper translations are yet to be examined. This research project focuses on translated Russian literature in Dutch newspapers and considers these translations as elements used by the editors for specific purposes and will examine the different purposes for publishing translations in newspapers.
