Wilkinson College Graduate Student Workshop
Tuesday, April 14, 2020
Are you interested in a way to boost your own creativity while exploring the work of others? Ever thought about translation but don't know where to begin? This workshop will explore these ideas and more. One of our aims will be to look at two contrasting concepts of translation and how they can be applied to literary translation. We will also discuss particular examples of short translated prose and poetry texts. Students from all linguistic and cultural backgrounds are invited to participate and are encouraged to bring translations they may currently be working on to workshop in class. Publication possibilities for translated works will also be presented and discussed.
