International Women's Day Film Screening and Q&A: Surviving Translation

Thursday 7 March 2024, 4.30PM

Speaker(s): Charlotte Bosseaux (University of Edinburgh)

On Thursday 7th March, we will show a film screening of Surviving Translation,  co-created and co-produced by Dr Charlotte Bosseaux (University of Edinburgh). A Q&A will follow the screening. This is a special colloquium event to mark International Women's Day.

Film: Surviving Translation (Charlotte Bosseaux and Ling Lee, 2023).
Rejeen Musa was working as a subtitler on 'Surviving Translation' when the words she was translating began to unlock painful memories from her own past. As a female Kurdish migrant and a translator, Rejeen became the lens through which the film explores the trauma and life-altering consequences of mistranslation. Raw testimony, poetic imagery, and academic research coalesce in this unique meditation on translation, isolation, and the meaning of 'home'.

Please also see the film trailer and this full overview for more information.

The event will take place at 4:30pm, and there will be an opportunity to ask questions at the end. There will also be an informal drinks reception afterwards in the Department of Language and Linguistic Science (Deborah Hines Room, 2nd floor). Everyone is welcome!
