NOTIS’ Northwest Literary Translators present:

Translation Slam 2024!

Date, time, and location: 06/20/2024, 17:30 – 19:30 @ Folio, the Seattle Athenaeum, 93 Pike Street, #307

The ever-popular Translation Slam returns for another round! This year, we'll feature a challenging text in French, and competing interpretations by human (and maybe non-human) translators. Audience participation encouraged. No knowledge of French required.

Expect fierce competition from:

  • Arwen Dewey, who has worked on projects ranging from 18th century fairy tales to 21st century running shoe manuals
  • Elise Kruidenier, a translator of non-fiction texts about history, literature, and video games
  • Zakiya Hanafi, who translates humanities books and interprets in hospitals and immigration court

...moderated by the calm hand of esteemed referee Rich Watts, UW Associate Professor of French and co-founder of the Translation Studies Hub.

Please bring a beverage of your choice to share!

Cost:  $5 for NOTIS and Folio members | $15 general* 

*A one-year membership at NOTIS is just $55 (or $25 if you’re a student), and saves you $$ on event registrations (many of the literary events are even free for members!). To learn more, visit notisnet.org/why-join
