Julie Hayes, Chair of the Languages, Literatures, and Cultures (LLC) Department at UMass, has a new online publication that may prove very useful to translation studies scholars. Her database French Translators, 1600-1800: An Online Anthology of Prefaces and Criticism has just been made available online through ScholarWorks@UMassAmherst. This corpus of seventeenth and eighteenth-century French translators’ prefaces and treatises on translation and language stems from the research for her book Translation, Subjectivity, and Culture in France and England 1600-1800, to be published in October 2008 (see Research) by Stanford University Press. In making these materials available online, Julie provides longer excerpts from texts that are cited briefly, and often in English translation, in the book. These texts should prove useful to translation studies scholars and translation historians, as well as students and scholars of the Enlightenment.
