The Centre for Reception Studies (KU Leuven) explores the various ways in which literary and cultural texts are received by reading communities, translators, professional critics, journals, writers and creative artists working with other media. Studying the historical and/or geographical circulation of these texts, we want to probe into the process of how reading (in the broadest sense of the word) can generate new meaning(s) in the afterlife of literary works through time and space. The Centre favours an interdisciplinary approach that combines reception studies, translation studies, history of the book, adaptation studies and hermeneutics. CERES organises the CERES Lecture Series featuring distinguished scholars in the field.
