Program in Translation and Intercultural Communication
Join the Program in Translation and Intercultural Communications for a hands-on conversation between PTIC Translator in Residence Hanna Leliv and Ukrainian writer and scholar Oleksandr Mykhed, about his recent book “Language of War: Chronicles of the Invasion.” This riveting work of nonfiction begins on the first day of the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine and chronicles the next 13 months from a deeply personal perspective, weaving in the voices of those whose lives have been changed forever by the war. Oleksandr will share his strategies for conveying harrowing events through human stories, and Hanna will talk about her experience translating an essay from the book, “Small Big Evil,” and the particular challenges she encountered.
