Translation Duel

Save the date for the next Translation Duel!

On Discover Research Dublin night, Literature Ireland in partnership with the Centre for Literary Translation is hosting a ‘translation duel’ to showcase translation as a creative practice. Literary translators Rachel McNicholl and Ruth Martin will be given a German-language text to work on in advance of the duel. The original text and their translations will be supplied to all members of the audience.

Caitriona Leahy, Lecturer in German at Trinity College Dublin, will host a conversation about the translation choices the two translators made. Members of the audience will be invited to join in the discussion, to ask questions of the translators and to suggest translations of their own.
The audience does not need any knowledge of German to enjoy the evening!

Where: Trinity College Dublin, Printing House, east of the Graduates Memorial Building and near the croquet lawn.

When: Friday 25 September from 6 pm to 7:30 pm.
