Lecture Series

Tuesday, March 7, 2017


Coulter Lounge

This international and collaborative 2-day workshop will bring together distinguished poets and translators of East Asian poetry, both classical and modern, as a means to explore and re-imagine the concepts of text and translation through the lends of East Asian media studies. In the day, panelists will present their translations of East Asian poetry and walk the audience through the problems, methodologies, and decisions that went into the creation of the translation. Each evening, the Seminary Co-op will be hosting a joint poetry reading involving poet and translators, as well as screenings of “poetry films.”

Join us on Tuesday, March 7th in the Coulter Lounge for the final poetry reading of this 2 day workshop with presenters Brother Anthony of Taizé and Peter Robinson.
