I would like to draw your attention to a public roundtable and networking reception at this year’s Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver on 4 June 2019. This should be of interest to members of your faculty, especially students who may be considering a career in translation.
Chairs on Chairs: A Guide to Scandinavian Literary Translators’ Networks will feature representatives from DELT, SELTA and STiNA discussing the role played by translator networks in promoting Scandinavian literary culture in English, and more generally the current state of Scandinavian literature in translation. This roundtable session will be directly followed by a networking reception. Both elements are open to the public and you are very welcome!
The event is kindly supported by the Association for the Advancement of Scandinavian Studies in Canada (AASSC), the Danish Arts Foundation and the Swedish Arts Council.
