Kitchen Table Translation: Migration, Diaspora, Contexts

When the movement of texts (translation) is linked with the movement of bodies (migration), language and culture collide with politics, history, race and imperialism – the very contexts of migration. Immigrant and diasporic translators connect personal, cultural, and political dimensions of translation to the technical and aesthetic aspects of their work. With Eiko Otake, Dagmawi Woubshet, Amy Sara Carroll. Moderated by Madhu Kaza.

Presented in partnership with The Bridge Series on literary translation, Asian American Writers’ Workshop, and Aster(ix) Journal.

This event is free and open to the public.
