Translating Feeling/Traducir Sentir: Dis/Course with Xime Izquierdo Ugaz y Edua Restrepo-Castaño

How are we traversed by translation? What is its role in our lives be us monolinguals, bilinguals, or polyglots? In this workshop we'll discuss translation as a site for poetry making beyond written language.

¿En qué formas nos atraviesa la traducción? ¿Cual es su rol en nuestras vidas, seamos bilingües, monolingües o políglotas? En este taller, conversaremos sobre la traducción como espacio de creación poética más allá del lenguaje escrito.

Each Dis/Course meeting is free and open and meets virtually on Zoom. Participants are invited to RSVP in advance to receive a packet of readings and other material to begin the conversation. Reading in advance, however, is not be required, nor is any particular education background or expertise. Come, talk about poetry and possibility, teach, learn, share, and connect more deeply with The Poetry Project community.

This event will take place virtually over Zoom. Registration through The Poetry Project's Eventbrite is required.
