Translation & Exclusion vs. Inclusion
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.
