Celebrating less translated languages and literatures: In conversation with Hend Saeed and Mark Baczoni

October 13 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Over the last two decades, the term less translated languages has emerged to describe languages that are less often the source of translation in the international exchange of linguistic goods, regardless of the number of people using these languages. These languages have been translated to a much lesser extent, particularly into English. The AALITRA Review is launching a Special Issue to promote these languages in translation. The seminar is an opportunity to become engaged with such languages, as they are increasingly recognised on the global literary canvas. Our panel members, Hend Saeed and Mark Baczoni, will talk about their respective journeys as translators working with less translated languages and literatures. The discussion with our panel members will give our audience opportunities to expand their horizon, to reflect on a diversity of perspectives, and to find inspiration for future translation projects and research.
