Translation as Transhumance, with Preti Taneja and Ros Schwartz
Wednesday April 25th, 4:30 – 6PM, R1.03 (Ramphal Building)
A conversation between novelist, activist and Leverhulme Early Career Research Fellow at Warwick Preti Taneja and award-winning translator from the French Ros Schwartz. Mireille Gansel’s lyrical memoir Translation as Transhumance (translated by Schwartz) is an exploration of ‘the role of literature in making for a more interconnected and humane world’ (Eva Hoffman). The event will be of interest to anyone working in language, translation, literature or history, and will touch on memory, exile, ethics, poetry, writing as activism, and the power of translation to connect us all.
Copies of the book will be available to purchase. For more information please contact the organiser Rosalind Harvey (email@example.com).
