Translation: The Pitfalls and the Poetry

Friday 28 February 2020, 10.00AM to 12 noon

Speaker(s): Marielle Sutherland

Join us for this talk with Dr Marielle Sutherland, who will discuss the realities of translation and the position of the translator, drawing on her extensive experience of non-fiction, academic and literary translation, the latter ranging from Holocaust poetry to the poems of Rainer Maria Rilke. This is a unique occasion to hear about, and think about, what it really means to translate challenging literary and non-fiction texts. Refreshments will be served after the talk.

All welcome.
