Lost and Found in Translation: Part II

Event Closed

More Details

Shelly Bryant has translated three of Chinese writer Sheng Keyi’s novels to date; the Man Asian nominated Northern Girls, Fields of White and, most recently, Death Fugue – a take on the events at Tiananmen Square in 1989. Together with Christopher Mattison the two writers will explore the translation process behind Death Fugue and the challenges an author and translator face. What is lost and what is gained in the translation? How important is translation to cultural exchange? This event is held in English and Chinese.
