Distant Voices, Connected Stories: A panel discussion on the pleasures and challenges of reading fiction from elsewhere.

Reading allows our imagination to travel, especially when the books we read have been translated from another language. When we encounter literature from other cultures, we hear distant, unfamiliar voices, but we also recognise what connects us despite differences of language and culture.

Join the University’s Birmingham Centre for Translation for this special event where panellists Dr Angela Kershaw (French Studies), Dr Gabriela Saldahna (Department of English), and Dr Danielle Fuller (Department of English) will talk about the voices – and the silences – of translation. Which translated voices speak the loudest, and which are barely heard?
