Israeli Literature in Translation Reaches the République des Lettres (France)

April 4, 2019
12:00 – 1:30 PM
Schusterman Center Conference Room
3rd Floor, Mandel Center for the Humanities
Brandeis University

Join us for a presentation by our Writer in Residence, Dr. Chantal Ringuet, an award-winning Canadian author, scholar and translator. Dr. Ringuet was previously Scholar in Residence at the Hadassah-Brandeis Institute, in 2016. Learn more about Dr. Ringuet.

Her talk will focus on the main issues and challenges pertaining to the translation and dissemination of modern Israeli literature in France. What are the main issues encountered in writing a reference book on Israeli literature destined to a French readership? While l’Académie française (founded in 1635) is acting as the main authority on the French language, how do the cultural parameters of Israel conform to those of France through the medium of literary translation? These are the main questions that we will examine.

Lunch will be provided. RSVP by April 2 to annasimpson@brandeis.edu.

Cosponsored by the Hadassah-Brandeis Institute.
