Bristol Translates Literary Translation Summer School

The Bristol Translates Literary Translation Summer School will take place online from 4 to 8 July 2022 – applications are now open. The 2022 programme, aimed at practising translators at any stage of their career and at language enthusiasts who want to explore the world of literary translation, will include workshops from Arabic, Catalan, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Russian, Spanish, and Turkish – plus a multi-language workshop run by Daniel Hahn – to take place over three days. These sessions will be complemented by two full days of talks and panels on literary translation, including a keynote speech from Professor Susan Bassnett, panels with publishers, and themed sessions on translating for the theatre, translating children’s and young adult literature, the use of CAT tools in literary translation, translating video games, and poetry translation. There will be expert speakers discussing translator contracts in the UK and in the USA, a presentation by English PEN, and Comma Press’s annual translation competition. Participants from around the world are welcome to apply. All workshops will be into English, and excellent command of English is required.
