Writers Who Are Translators


May 2 | FIAF | NYC

With Brian Evenson, Forrest Gander, Cole Swensen, and Paul Verhaeghen; moderated by Martin Riker

Translators are artists. They do not simply transfer the sentences of a work into a new language, they must truly create a new work of art based upon the original. Join American and foreign writers/translators to discuss the intersection of literary writing and translating, how the two contribute to one another, and the particular value of translating another writer’s work, or even one’s own.

Cosponsored by FIAF and Dalkey Archive Press, the Center for Translation Studies at the University of Illinois
