Read the World: A Kaleidoscope of Translated Literature
Listen in as the ALTA Emerging Translator Mentorship Program cohorts present readings of literature translated into English from around the world! The program pairs emerging translators with an established translator to work together on a book-length literary translation over the course of nine months, providing the next generation of translators of world literature with support and community as they hone their craft. These 14 mentees translate collectively from 10 different languages in multiple genres, sharing a wealth of writers, languages, and stories with a broad readership.
This event is offered in partnership with the Tucson Humanities Festival. We are also grateful to the UA Poetry Center for hosting this event!
