Warwick Translates Summer School
Dates: 6-10 July 2019
Venue: University of Warwick, Coventry, UK
Registration fee: £495
Warwick Translates is the first literary translation summer school to be held at the University of Warwick. It offers the opportunity to translate texts across the literary genres into English, working with leading professional translators. Groups will be limited to a maximum of 20 students to allow for individual attention, and places will be allocated on a strictly “first-come-first-served” basis.
The course will be taught in an all-day workshop environment using a variety of texts including non-fiction (essays, journalism, academic) and fiction (poetry, fantasy, children’s literature and crime writing etc.) There will be plenty of opportunities for networking with publishers, agents, Warwick staff and one another. Lunch time events will include discussion panels with publishers and editors. Evening events will include a Translation Slam and a Keynote Lecture by Preti Taneja entitled ‘Translating Shakespeare in conflict and post-conflict zones: the challenge to “universal” human rights’.
Attendees can choose to work in one language or to split their time between two languages by attending morning workshops in one and afternoon workshops in the other language. To see timings of workshops and events download the provisional programme.
