On Saturday 10 March, a symposium on Translation will be hosted at Magdalene College, under the joint auspices of the English and Modern Languages departments, as part of the College’s Festival of Change.
Speakers will be Professor of Italian, Robin Kirkpatrick, German translator Dr Sophie Seita, and the award-winning Hungarian poet, George Szirtes, in a round-table discussion chaired by Dr Jane Hughes. The key-note lecture will be given by Clare Pollard, whose 2013 translation of Ovid’s Heroines has been widely-acclaimed. A workshop will also take place, chaired by Ms Silke Mentchen.
