This is the homepage of the group Cultural transfer and transmission history
In this group we will work with various aspects:
- theory of cultural transfer and transmission
- (meta)historiography of cultural transfer and transmission

Cultural transfer is regarded as an one-way activity (a text is translated from one language into another), cultural transmission is reciprocally (cultural and literary information is shared). It goes without saying that there is room for grey zones. We are looking forward to discuss this working definition.
In several language areas scholars make efforts to visualize the work of translators. One fine example is the Swedish translator database: http://www.oversattarlexikon.se/
See also 'work in progress' in this group for another example.
