Translation Workshop
Even if you don’t speak another language, translation can be a wonderful way to explore how language works. Refresh your approach to your own reading and writing in this workshop with award-winning translator Jennifer Croft. We will look closely at a range of texts, including but not limited to work in translation; and complete one translation of our own. Sessions will be divided into four themes: Reading, Translating, Revising, and Untranslatability. Among the works we’ll discuss are: Laszlo Krasznohorkai’s “On Velocity” (translated by George Szirtes); Rabee Jabber’s Confessions (translated by Kareem James Abu-Zeid); Olga Anokhina, “Vladimir Nabokov and His Translators”; Jamel Brinkley, “J’ouvert, 1996”; Katie Kitamura’s A Separation; and Clare Cavanagh’s “The Art of Losing.”
