Laura Leden is a PhD candidate in translation studies at the University of Helsinki, working on the final stages of her thesis on adaptation in translations of girls’ fiction from English into Swedish and Finnish, including translations of Montgomery’s Emily trilogy. Alongside her PhD project, she has written several journal articles and book chapters on the translations of Montgomery’s books and been a regular speaker at the L.M. Montgomery conferences for the last ten years.
Dr. Kate Scarth is the Chair of L.M. Montgomery Studies at UPEI, where she works closely with the L.M. Montgomery Institute, and is also an Assistant Professor of Applied Communication, Leadership, and Culture. She is particularly interested in the relationship between story and place and works on writers from Jane Austen to Montgomery. Her current projects include yourlmmontgomerystory.com, which was featured in June 2020 on CBC. As always, you can check out links to this great project in the show notes.
