Caroline Summers is Assistant Professor of Translation and Transcultural Studies at the University of Warwick. Prior to joining Warwick in 2022, she worked at the University of Leeds (2012-2022).

Caroline’s research explores translation in the literature of German Reunification (1989/90) and its aftermath. More broadly, she is interested in literary translation and how it links to ideas about authorship, and also in the power of narratives to shape our identities and our lives.
