Joynes Event:  Panel: The Art of Translation

Good translators convey not only the literal meaning of a text, but also the voice of the author and a reflection of cultural context. Three outstanding translators will share their work and discuss the process in this free, public event. Panelists include Wayne Rebhorn (translator of The Prince by Machiavelli and The Decameron by Boccaccio); Adria Frizzi (translator of contemporary Brazilian literature); and Mary Jo Bang (translator of Dante’s Inferno).


This event is free and open to the public.

The Joynes Reading Room is located on the east side of the Carothers Residence Hall at 2501 Whitis Avenue on the University of Texas at Austin Campus.  Paid parking is available at the garage at 25th Street and San Antonio.

Call 512 471-5787 for more information.
