Dr Coraline Jortay
Laming Junior Research Fellow
I grew up in Wallonia, the southern French-speaking part of Belgium, where I attended my local state school. In 2009, I moved to Brussels to study Chinese and English for a Translation and Interpreting degree at the Institut Supérieur de Traducteurs et Interprètes (ISTI). My graduate education includes a MA in Translation, and a PhD in Literature and Translation Studies from the Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB, 2020). I arrived at Oxford in 2020 as a Wiener-Anspach Postdoctoral Fellow with the Oxford China Centre, before taking up my current position at Queen’s in 2021. In addition to my academic career, I am a published translator of contemporary Sinophone literature into French, with a taste for poetry and short fiction.
