Translation as Literature, Literature as Translation

Ottawa plays host to Asymptote Magazine's latest 4th anniversary celebration, with an evening of stimulating discussion around the themes of translation and poetry. Joining us will be University of Ottawa Associate Professor at the School of Translation and Interpretation Marc Charron, esteemed poet, author, editor and translator Seymour Mayne, writer, editor and publisher Amanda Earl, and Asymptote’s own Romania Editor-at-Large Chris Tănăsescu, also a poet, performer, and translator.

Proceedings will begin with Marc Charron, who will speak on contemporary translation and working in translation studies, and continue with elaboration and personal perspectives from our other speakers, followed by poetry readings and open discussion. Attendees will then have the opportunity to take part in a Q&A with our guests.
