Inflection Points: A Gallery Talk on Poetry in Translation

10/5/2021 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm PDT

As we emerge from this time of crisis, how might the field of literary translation chart new trajectories and imagine new narratives of possibility? Five translators of poetry—Kareem James Abu-Zeid (Arabic, French, German), Alex Braslavsky (Polish, Russian), Jein Han (Korean), Jack Jung (Korean), and Farid Matuk (Spanish)—will discuss how this question informed their process of curating works for Inflection Points, a digital exhibition presented by the Poetry Center in collaboration with the American Literary Translators Association. Curators will highlight pieces from the exhibit and explore the potential for poetry to cross boundaries of language, culture, place, and time.

Note: This free event is part of the ALTA44 annual conference. Attendees must register through InEvent (see link below), but may select a "Free - Special Event Access" ticket to join this event for free.

This event is a collaboration between ALTA and the University of Arizona Poetry Center, and is hosted by The Humanities Festival at the University of Arizona.
