Arizona Translates! Inflection Points: A Gallery Talk on Poetry in Translation

Tuesday, October 5, 4:00-5:00pm PT

Virtual event: Register through InEvent and select a “Free – Special Event Access” ticket

Moderator: Julie Swarstad Johnson

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. Curators will highlight pieces from the exhibit and explore the potential for poetry to cross boundaries of language, culture, place, and time.

Access Information: This event will be CART-captioned, and a recording will be made available afterwards on ALTA’s Crowdcast page.

This event is a collaboration between ALTA and the University of Arizona Poetry Center, is supported by a grant from Arizona Humanities, and is hosted by the College of Humanities’ Tucson Humanities Festival.
