PANEL:

★  Ring of Fire, New Creations: Translations on the Pacific Rim I’ll Drown My Book: Conceptual Writing by Women.

Sawako Nakayasu,  Prageeta Sharma, Neil Aitken, Karen An-hwei Lee (Moderator)
Thursday, February 27

1:30-2:45 PM
Location: Room LL5, Western New England MFA Annex, Lower Level

Contemporary Asian American poets discuss their strategies and experiences in translating poetry from nations of the Pacific Rim, sharing insights on methodology, collaborative process, cross-cultural representations, and experimental forms. Transcending the conventions of fidelity or transparency, the investigations of these poet-translators go beyond the question of what is “lost in translation” to consider the potential of translations as entirely new creations. A respondent will present closing remarks prior to a question and answer session.
