A Conversation on Translation Studies with "Monkey Business"

September 20, 2017 - 3:00pm to 4:30pm

Veteran translators, illustrators, and writers from the Monkey Business journal will visit the Italian Translation Workshop and Italian Translation Studies courses to discuss challenges of translation in Japanese, English, Italian, and perhaps other languages. Students will find out how Dante’s Italian classic Inferno became a graphic novel, reimagined by the British poet John Agard and the Japanese illustrator Satoshi Kitamura.

Students or faculty interested in participating should contact exley@pitt.edu for additional information.
