Translation and Inclusion vs Exclusion II
Monday 31 January 2022, 5pm (UK) / 7pm (Greece)
Chair: Prof. Gonda Van Steen (CHS, KCL)
Participants: Ruth Padel (Author and Poet), Dr Therese Sellers (Author, Poet and Translator), and Soloup (Graphic Artist)
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.
