Reading Literature in Translation | 4-week workshop
May 3, May 10, May 17, & May 24 from 7-9 p.m.
OSU-Tulsa

Translation is the invisible protagonist of international literature. It lays shared foundations from the Bible to Don Quixote to Harry Potter, breaks down borders between languages and ways of life, and is the only way for countless writers around the world to share their work with a global audience.

So why do we hear so little about literary translation? Why is the translator so often an afterthought rather than a main character? And how can we read translations with the respect and appreciation they deserve?

In this workshop, we will look for answers to these questions by reading literature IN translation and literature AS translation. We’ll read remarkable examples of translated lit, discuss the big ideas behind literary translation, and hear from translators themselves about their work. You’ll leave this workshop with a newfound fascination for translation and an itch to keep widening your literary horizons.

Speaker:
Sarah Kopelman-Noyes, United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, Senior Technical Information Specialist, Names Data Branch, National Institute for Holocaust Documentation

Learning Outcomes:
The Database for Holocaust Survivor and Victim Names (HSV) contains 12 million records on people persecuted during World War II under the Nazi regime. It brings together information from the Museum’s collections, as well as from other organizations, about individual survivors and victims into one search tool. This webinar will highlight the many ways the USHMM gathers this data and the efforts made to ensure this data is made available to the public. Learn how the HSV Database allows anyone to search for a name of a survivor or victim of Nazi persecution (even via Google), find information about that individual, and in some cases request a copy of the original document.

May 31 from 7-9 p.m.

Whether you’re an established writer or just starting out, pitching is an essential part of the publication process. As an editor for Bon Appétit, I have read, passed on, and greenlit countless pitches. As a writer who has published in places such as The New York Times, The Atlantic, and BuzzFeed News, I also understand the rigorous process one must undertake to make their pitch stand out from the crowd. In this short workshop, we’ll talk about what makes a pitch shine from the slush pile. We’ll review pitches that sold and pitches that miss the mark and why. We will also discuss your own pitches (submitted in advance) and workshop how to make them stronger.
