Stories in Translation: Where are the Women?
In the UK, just 1 in 3 books published in translation are written by women.
Continuing our women in publishing theme, this event will discuss and explore thoughts and perspectives on why women are still hugely under-represented in the world of literary translation. Our event will also showcase some of the initiatives that are leading the way to promote more awareness such as the 'Warwick Prize for Women in Translation' and 'Women in Translation Month'. Our panel will also discuss how the translation process works and how books in translation are received in the UK.
Our panel will include Chantal Wright (Professor at the University of Warwick and co-ordinator of the 'Warwick Prize for Women in Translation'), Rosalind Harvey (award winning literary translator), and Chilean writer Alia Trabucco Zerán.
The discussion will be chaired by Olga Castro (Lecturer in Translation Studies at Aston University).
