How can we forge stronger relationships with translators who work beyond the academy? What singular perspectives do these translators bring to the art as full-time writers and theorists in their own regard? In this roundtable, we’ll talk with two of contemporary literature’s most prolific writers about translation as a full-time endeavor. We’ll explore how they’ve built meaningful relationships with authors and editors, and where they stand relative to the space and place of the university.
