Atwater Poetry Project & La poésie partout … Provocations: A Mise en Translation
January 26, 2021, 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM PST
Translation as a material, interpretive practice, plurilingual translators, feminist investigations, queer embodiments, rebellious poetics … Directed and provoked by Oana Avasilichioaei, this choral mise en translation stages a live reading and conversation between three poet-scholar translators voicing recent translation experiments: Elena Basile’s English-French-German Elena Basile’s English-French-Italian diffractions and theorizations; Erín Moure’s Frenglish-Guaraní transformation of Brazilian writer Wilson Bueno; and K.B. Thors’s English reimagining of Icelandic poet Kristín Svava Tómasdóttir.
