If you're in Rochester . . . (maybe they'll post video for the rest of us):
Next Monday (March 23), we’re hosting a roundtable discussion at the
University of Rochester with several highly distinguished guests—and,
also, Chad will be there. Here are the basics:
“The Politics of Translation: What Gets Translated and Why”
March 23, 5:00 P.M.

It’s sure to be a

literary books into English translation. The panel will feature:
-Amanda Hopkinson, British Centre for Literary Translation at the
University of East Anglia, translator of Diamela Eltit and others.
-Suzanne Jill Levine, University of California-Santa Barbara, author of
The Subversive Scribe, translator of Manuel Puig and others.

And will be moderated by:

Rochester’s publishing imprint specializing in literary translations.
