12/11: Peter Connor on translation

This Friday, 12/11, Peter Connor of Barnard College will give a lecture on literary translation. Professor Connor writes:

In this talk I will offer some reflections on changing approaches to literary
translation, with particular attention to the translation of the novel. I will argue that the emergence of a globalized literary space has engendered both new translation practices and new theories of translation. The goal of the talk is to open a dialogue about the linguistic, cultural, and sociological challenges of literary translation today.

The talk will take place at 3pm, in Hamilton 703. Correction: the talk will take place in Hamilton 709.
