Poetry Master Class with Alicia Partnoy, March 30

“Translating Solidarity: A Workshop on Witness Poetry Translation”

Wednesday, March 30, 2:00 to 4:30 PM, Science Center, Room 152 (Rockville)

This a master class  with poet Alicia Partnoy, primarily for students. Seating is limited, so those interested must register with me by email at genevieve.carminati@montgomerycollege.edu. Those who can only stay for part of the workshop are also welcome.

Students will  do some hands-on translation work (for those students who do not speak any other language, editing translations will work). Ms. Partnoy’s project involves the poetry of a mother from Ciudad Juarez who started to write after the disappearance of her daughter. First, Ms. Partnoy will read and reflect on her work as a translator, and then students will work on translation projects in groups.
