International Book Club
Join us at this event run by the Translation Exchange. The Exchange brings together expertise in literary translation and outreach within the College, University, city, and country to develop a broad programme of translation-related activities for students, schools, and the public.
The focus of the Translation Exchange is on bringing students from the Medieval and Modern Languages, Oriental Studies, Classics, and English faculties together with teachers and pupils from local schools for translation workshops. With an emphasis on translation as a creative, inspiring, and aspiration-raising activity, these workshops will channel the students’ expertise in translation and enthusiasm for language-learning and literature into enriching literary experiences for young people from primary age upwards.
A brand new book club for all interested in international fiction. We’ll be reading The Remainder by the Chilean author Alia Trabucco Zerán, translated from the Spanish by Sophie Hughes. This short novel focuses on the children of those who fought against Pinochet’s dictatorship in Chile, and how they cope with its repercussions.
