Multilingual literary translation master class

At Seattle Central College with Anton Hur 


NOTE: Priority registration will be given to NOTIS student members until March 16. Don't miss out!

As part of his visit to Seattle, acclaimed literary translator Anton Hur will be at Seattle Central College to give an undergraduate workshop to students registered for Takami Nieda’s ENGL210: Translation for Global Competence. Students will participate in a generative critique of translations-in-progress by participants of the masterclass. Translation is often perceived as a solitary task, but this workshop will demonstrate the benefits of collaborating in a supportive community and asking questions such as, “What was being attempted here? and “How can we help the translator to capture that better?” Participants will have the opportunity to submit their own samples of up to 300 words of prose or two short poems, and select samples will be chosen for generative critique during the workshop.

A limited number of seats are available to NOTIS members. We're offering access first to NOTIS student members; registration for individual members will open on March 15 if seats remain. You do not need to be a Seattle Central student to register. Instructions about how to submit your work will be emailed to the address you use to register.

Anton Hur is the author of Toward Eternity (HarperVia) and No One Told Me Not To (Across Books). As a translator, he was double-longlisted and shortlisted for the 2022 International Booker Prize. He resides in Seoul. Shop for his translations online here, including Cursed Bunny and Your Utopia by Bora Chung, A Magical Girl Retires by Seolyeon Park, and Beyond the Story: 10-Year Record of BTS
