Tucson Humanities Festival – 'Inflection Points: A Gallery Talk on Poetry in Translation'

When: October 05, 2021 4:00pm to 5:00pm
Tucson Humanities Festival: Inflection Points

As we emerge from this time of crisis, how might the field of literary translation chart new trajectories and imagine new narratives of possibility? Four translators of poetry – Kareem James Abu-Zeid (Arabic, French, German), Alex Braslavsky (Polish, Russian), Jein Han (Korean), and Farid Matuk (Spanish) – will discuss how this question informed  their  process of curating works for " Inflection Points," a digital exhibition presented by the Poetry Center in collaboration with the American Literary Translators Association (ALTA). Curators will highlight pieces from the exhibit and explore the potential for poetry to cross boundaries of language, culture, place and time.

This event is supported by a grant from Arizona Humanities.
