Reading Children’s Literature in Translation

Reading Children’s Literature in Translation

Monday 8th March, 4pm

Speakers: Ruth Ahmedzai Kemp -  translator from German, Russian and Arabic into English

                    Helen Wang – translator from Chinese into English



In this seminar we will explore the reading and reception of literature in translation written for children and young adults. We’ll reflect on the different agents and readers involved in these processes, and consider whose voices are, and should be, heard when it comes to the reviewing and recommending of literature aimed at younger audiences. We’ll also discuss the role of different organizations and institutions in promoting a more culturally and globally diverse reading experience.
