Literary Wales in Germany:
Virtual Seminar for German publishers and literary translators
Monday, 28th of June 2021, 10:00 – 13:00 CET
The online seminar, co-ordinated by Wales Literature Exchange in collaboration with VdÜ and the British Council in Germany, will provide a general introduction to the culture, languages and literature of Wales. Wales Literature Exchange is the literary organisation that connects Welsh writers, translators and publishers, and promotes Welsh writing in both national languages to audiences around the world.
Speakers will include representatives from Wales Literature Exchange, the Books Council of Wales, Wales Arts International, the British Council in Germany and the Wales-based platform Literature Across Frontiers, with presentations and discussion of selected contemporary titles from Wales.
Literary translators, both established and emerging translators from English or Welsh (or both) are welcome, and students and other individuals with knowledge of Welsh who may wish to explore a combination of bridge translation through English and direct translation of Welsh-language literature are encouraged to attend. Literary translators into German who have previously worked on other anglophone literatures are also warmly invited to attend. We ask that translators also register their place by Sunday, 20th June by using this form: https://forms.gle/M5x7jfwaBj6pLxXf6
