More Than Words: Translation and Interpretation

Listen to More Than Words: Translation and Interpretation

Join some brilliant translators for a discussion that focuses on translation in and beyond the arts. Our panellists, including Nobuko Aiso and Kylie Bracknell, will discuss the mysterious processes – as well as the perceived and inevitable barriers – of their work. Who gets translated and why? What are some specific challenges of translation in the arts? How does a translator’s own experience (of life and language) infuse their work?

At this Asia TOPA event at the Wheeler Centre, hosted by Stephen Armstrong, we talk about the possibilities, politics, future and mystery of translation.

Presented by the Wheeler Centre for Asia TOPA. Asia TOPA is a joint initiative of the Sidney Myer Fund and Arts Centre Melbourne and is supported by the Australian and Victorian Governments.
