ELN VII: Bridging the Gap – Stories and histories in translation

If writing attempts to create links between past and present, the foreign and the familiar, dreams and reality, then arguably translation is another kind of bridge between worlds. This panel of writers, translators and publishers will explore how literature in translation can give anglophone readers the opportunity to experience the stories and histories of other literary voices.

WITH The Open University’s Fiona Doloughan (Chair), Istros Books publisher Susan Curtis-Kojakovic, writer Evan Flisar (Slovenia), poet Wioletta Greg (Poland) and translator Marek Kazmierski.

The event is free but seating is limited, advance booking is required via the British Library Box Office.
