Seminar series
Politics of Translation - Translation of Cultures

Join us for an evening in conversation with Dr Anna-Louise Milne as she reflects on her most recent publication, and her first work written in French, 75.

Following the publication of her recent book, 75(Gallimard, 2016), earlier this year, Anna-Louise Milne, in conversation with Kate Averis, will discuss the writing processes that took her from a building site to a “roman sans fiction,” a journey in both daily habits and linguistic estrangement and an encounter with some unlikely archives. Why these discoveries prompted a poetic response and why that poetic response required the decision to write in an adopted language are a couple of the questions that Kate and Anna-Louise might explore together.

The event will be followed by a drinks reception, with opportunities for further discussion and networking.

The seminar – part of the Politics of Translation, Translation of Culture series - offers an opportunity for reflection and informal discussion on the ideas raised by75 and, more broadly, by the work of the Paris Centre for Migrant Writing and Expression, the series continues throughout the year and is open to anyone with an interest in translation studies.

The event is free but numbers are limited; please register in advance to reserve your place.
