“Writing translation / Translating writing” — Master Class with Pierre Joris

This masterclass work- & talk-shop — “Writing translation / Translating writing” — probes our approach to “creative’ (qua “original”) writing by inverting the traditional relationship of original text & translated copy, thus re-inscribing the activity of translation as core process of the act of writing. While starting as a public conversation, students will soon be simultaneously involved with writing & with translation from a language of their choice into English in a range of forms proposed by their own practice & cultural background.
