J B Metzler, part of the Springer Nature publishing group, will publish the open access book series on the DFG (German Research Foundation) priority programme Translation Cultures of the Early Modern Period. The programme aims to promote interdisciplinary exchange on problems, opportunities and consequences of various forms of translation, including cultural translation, in an early phase of globalisation. Running for six years, the book series will issue around 30 monographs and conference proceedings between 2020 and 2026, which will be available as open access publications.
The first two titles of the book series – Concepts and Practices of Translation in the Early Modern Period and Engelländisch to and fro. German-English Translation Culture of the Early Modern Era – are planned for publication in 2020.
