Date: 
November 6, 2014
Running Time: 
54:10

This roundtable discussion focuses on publishers—including major publishing companies, small presses, and online media—who engage in translation. Students (both undergraduate and graduate) can come to meet people working with literature outside of academia and learn about potential alternatives to an academic career.

Campus professionals who engage with foreign literature in the United States in various capacities highlight the ways in which, beyond the work of translators themselves, a variety of professionals deal with the material implications of promoting foreign literature in this country.

This is one in a series of three panels on the practice of literary translation presented by the Department of Comparative Literature as part of its ongoing effort to promote translation in all its forms across campus. Each event consists of a roundtable discussion devoted to a specific professional field and brings together three speakers.

Panelists include: Dwayne Hayes (Founder, Absinthe Magazine) , Jill Schoolman (Archipelago Books) and Emily Goedde (Moderator)
