Presented by: Sarah Nelson, University of Idaho

Using two quite different French texts—a noblewoman’s 17th-century life writing and the well- known 18th-century Philosophy in the Boudoir by the Marquis de Sade—this presentation will explore the problems with which a translator must contend in order to make these texts readable for a 21st-century audience.
