The New Literature From Europe Festival Presents: The Translation Slam
The New Literature From Europe Festival Presents: The Translation Slam
Tonight our champion MC Michael Reynolds, editor-in- chief of Europa Editions, pits titan Portuguese translators Julia Sanchez and Bruna Dantas Lobato against each other as they translate Susana Moreira Marques; and translators from the Dutch, Marjolijn de Jager and Annemarie van der Westhuysen go head-to-head over Tommy Wieringa’s work. Don’t miss this battle to the death, where we examine what happens when we transform narratives from one language to another. Proudly co-presented by PEN America and Nuyorican Poets Café.
