Marie-France Guénette is Assistant Professor of translation studies in the Department of Languages, Linguistics and Translation at Université Laval (Canada) and a member of the Canadian interuniversity research groups on digital humanities (CRIHN) and early modern studies (CIREM16/18). Her research interests lie at the intersections between transnational cultural exchanges, translation history, translators’ agency, and reception studies. Her current project on early modern studies, funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, explores the functions of manuscript and print translations at the English court of Queen Henrietta Maria (1625-1642). In 2021, the volume Situatedness and Performativity: Translation and Interpreting Practice Revisited, which she edited jointly with Raquel Pacheco Aguilar, was published at Leuven University Press. She leads the research program on Multilingualism and Translation, with Cecily Raynor (McGill), within the Quebec-based DH research group (CRIHN). She recently published a peer-reviewed article titled Insights into Technical Translation Course Design which articulates the complex variety of definitions of this field of specialty, as well as useful considerations for teaching this branch of translation studies.
