ELN VII: The Choreography of Translation

How does literature from smaller European nations, written in less well- known languages or from less familiar traditions, reach wider European audiences? Explore the roles played by translators, agents, publishers and others in selecting what is translated and published. How are translations ‘choreographed’ between various intermediaries? And why do some books ‘dance’ whilst others stumble or fall?

WITH Geopoetika’s Vladislav Bajac (Serbia), Istros Books publisher Susan Curtis-Kojakovic  (UK), translator from Portuguese and Spanish Margaret Jull Costa (UK), literary agent Nicole Witt (Germany) and researchers from the AHRC-funded research project Translating the Literatures of Small European Nations.

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