I will be on a panel to talk about my upcoming translation of Arash Allahverdi's book of poetry, Conquest. I will be talking about how the translation changed from a "normal" work that tried to locate itself towards the domesticated end of the foreignness spectrum to a translation with lots of marginalia, one that tries to make visible what's behind the process.
I will be handing out one of the poems from the collection, printed and bound as a nice, little booklet.
My panel is titled "The Beautiful Side of Strange: co•im•press Translators and their Conundrums." It will be held on Friday, November, 2, in the Redbud room. Learn more about the conference here: http://www.literarytranslators.org/conference/alta41.
