About the event

Join Jean Graham-Jones, Professor of Theatre, Hispanic and Luso-Brazilian Literatures and Languages, and Comparative Literature at the Graduate Center, CUNY, for a discussion of "Politics and Translation". Translation is a vital engine for public engagement with the humanities across NYC. The Translation Seminar Series features guest speakers who work with translation is scholarly, pedagogical, and creative contexts at CUNY and across the City. Meetings feature facilitated discussions, often springing from short shared readings, about the complexities of translating and reading works in translation.

This event is presented as part of Translation, an interdisciplinary research group that investigates how translation might be understood as a process of transformation that deepens engagement with places, people, cultures, and languages. The group is supported by the Mellon Seminar on Public Engagement and Collaborative Research. For more information or to join, email[email protected].
