In this studio-style workshop, each participant will bring a (very) short translation of their own to be discussed within the group. The class will spend about an hour on each, focusing on a couple of pieces in each session. Participants will benefit from one another’s feedback, and will also learn from the detail and rigor they need to bring to reading other people’s work. This workshop is suitable for early-career translators and would-be translators, working into English from any language.
Please Note: There will be no meeting on Thursday, November 25th.

Translated by Daniel Hahn
Known and celebrated in Brazil and abroad for his novel Resistance, Julián Fuks returns to his auto-fictional alter ego Sebastián in a narrative alternating between the writer’s conversations with refugees occupying a building in downtown São Paulo, his father’s sickness, and his wife’s pregnancy. With impeccable prose, the author builds associations that go beyond the obvious, not only between glimpsing a life’s beginning and end, but also between the building’s occupation and his wife’s pregnancy — showcasing the various forms of occupation while exposing the frailty of life, the risk of solitude and the brutality of not belonging.
