This half-day symposium on feminist translation in practice will bring together researchers, practitioners, translators, students and theatre-makers to exchange ideas and ways of working. It emerges from current research in the Centre for Latin American and Caribbean Studies at the Institute of Languages Cultures and Societies and seeks to create connections to work in other languages and disciplines.

The sessions include dialogues between researchers and practitioners and between authors and translators, with input from authors in Uruguay and Brazil. The aim to explore how feminist translation practices have an impact on how translators produce new translations, and how these practices can be extended to transform ways of working with others when it comes to publishing a text, or staging a translated play. This event aims to showcase how collaborations between authors and translators can transform and strengthen transnational feminist networks, provide the basis for creating networks for sharing feminist understanding through texts and develop methodologies for co-creation and exchanging critical ideas.

Event organisers: Sophie Stevens and Jamille Pinheiro Dias. Please contact Sophie Stevens if you have any questions or queries.

The event is hosted by the Centre for Latin American and Caribbean Studies at the Institute for Languages, Cultures and Societies and is supported by funding from the Convocation Trust and The John Coffin Memorial Fund.
