This is one in a series of 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 the U-M campus. Students can come to meet people working with literature outside of academia and learn about potential alternatives to an academic career.
Panelists Include: Esther Allen, a distinguished translator and writer, teaches at Baruch College (CUNY) and serves on the board of the American Literary Translators Association (ALTA). Laurence Marie is a culteral attaché at the Embassy of France in the United States and the Head of French Book Office in New York City. Jadranka Vrsalocic-Carevic, a translator and editor, is the director of the New York office of the Institut Ramon Lull, an agency responsible for the promotion of Catalan language and culture abroad. Etienne Charriere moderates the discussion.
