A conversation hosted by Bristol Translates on how translation makes a real difference in the world.
How can small acts transform the translation landscape? What does it take to map that landscape? And if translating is ‘writing in company’, then how do we nurture an interconnected community where new ideas and initiatives can take hold?
These are some of the questions that translators Daniel Hahn and Sarah Ardizzone will explore in their keynote conversation – focusing on specific examples and case-studies. They will then be joined by special guests: Bibi Bakare-Yusuf, who co-founded Cassava Republic to ‘change the way the world thinks about African writing’, and Layla Mohamed, assistant editor at Cassava. Bibi and Layla will share their experiences working on their first title in translation. There will be a short Q&A at the end.
This event will happen on Zoom. You will receive your link around mid-day on the day of the event.
