Translation and Identity

                  Translation and Identity


Monday 24th May, 4pm.

In light of current debates in the publishing industry more widely, this timely and never-more relevant discussion will address issues of diversity within the field of literary translation. We will discuss questions of access and inclusion in relation to what and who is or isn’t translated, and the responsibilities of publishers in redressing the balance. We will also discuss the role of the translator and what we, as readers, academics, and educators, can do to offer and access a more diverse reading experience.
