We are delighted to invite you to a Virtual Panel Discussion organised in collaboration with the Centre for Hellenic Studies, King’s College London and Aiora Press on Monday 24 January at 5pm (UK) / 7pm (Greece). You can participate in the event live online via Zoom.
Translation and Inclusion vs Exclusion
Chair: Prof. David Holton (University of Cambridge)
Participants: Claire Heywood (Author), Dr Mika Provata-Carlone (Independent Scholar, Translator, Illustrator, Editor) and Dr Haris Psarras (Poet)
Abstract: This session will address the theme of ‘translation and inclusion versus exclusion’. Following on from previous events on the topic of translation with Aiora Press, we hope in this panel to explore its intersection with the dynamics of inclusion versus exclusion, the existence or creation of minorities, the advocacy for a more pluralistic society via fiction, children’s literature, poetry, and graphic novels, which, in their own way, perform acts of ‘translation’ between cultures, languages or historical periods.
This is the first of two panel discussions on the same theme, both taking place via Zoom over two consecutive Mondays on 24 January and 31 January 2022.
We very much hope you can join us!
