In today's globalized society translation is everywhere, be it linguistic, cultural, coded. How is this border crossed? How do we deal with the translation of culture and how do we accept it? Is translation an academic exercise, or does it serve a purpose on all levels of communication? Is it creative or functional? How does translation help us, and why is it important?
This event is hosted by the Trinity Journal of Literary Translation (T-JoLT) in partnership with the Irish Writers' Centre; T-JoLT is an an academic, student-run journal which seeks to publish works of literary translation from any language into English or Irish. Our panel discussion, chaired by T-JoLT's Editor-in-Chief Aine Josephine Tyrrell and will be followed by a Q&A session after the debate. Following the event tea and coffee will be served from 8.00-9.00pm. The panel includes Dr. Peter Arnds, lecturer of the MPhil in Literary Translation at TCD; John Kearns, editor of Translation Ireland; Dr. Borbála Faragó teaching professor at St. Patrick's College; Dr. Nick Johnson, assistant professor of drama at TCD; and Elizabeth McSkeane, a Scottish-born translator and writer of poetry and fiction based in Dublin.
