We are now soliciting submissions for the 2017 Annual Oberlin College Student Translation Symposium.
For over a decade the translation symposium has been the intellectual and creative high point of the Oberlin academic year. It is a fast-paced, multilingual event that introduces and celebrates literary works from over a dozen languages.
Email your submission to:
Jed Deppman firstname.lastname@example.org
Patrick O’Connor email@example.com
by 4:30 pm, Sunday March 26
Submissions should include:
A brief original-language text (poetry or prose) with reference to source. Your original translation into English.
Each participant will have five minutes to do three things: read the original; read the translation; comment on the translation process.
Students will be notified on March 29.
The Symposium is at 5:00 pm on Wed., April 5, Craig Auditorium
Students selected as participants will be invited to lunch
on April 6 with keynote lecturer, Gail Ramshaw.
The 2017 symposium is sponsored by Comparative Literature, Creative Writing, English, and the Oberlin Center for Languages and Cultures.
