This year's &NOW Festival of Innovative Writing is held at the University of Washington, Bothell. I will be there on a panel on collaboration in translation. I will talk about my translation of Arash Allahverdi's ConQuest. What I am really looking forward to is the video I made to show after my talk.
The video is my reading of the poem "Vertigo" from the ConQuest collection and tries to imitate the structure of the translated book (which will hopefully come out from co.im.press soon).
You can read Allahverdi's "Shitkilling" on Asymptote and his "Bleeding" PARAGRAPHITI.
Here is a short description of my panel:
"How can translation be used in collaborative forms to go beyond spatial and geographical borders? Four panelists share their process of elevating narratives through multi-lingual partnerships."
