A conversation with scholars and translators of Kurdish literature into Polish, Italian, French, and English.

We are pleased to invite you to join panel discussion entitled, 'Translation and Language Revitalisation: Global Kurdish Literature', a conversation with scholars and translators of Kurdish literature into Polish, Italian, French, and English. The panel, chaired by Michelle Bolduc, Professor of Translation Studies, will discuss:

1- What effect does the market have on the publication of translations? 

2- How does translation revitalise such a minority language as Kurdish, and its literature? 

As part of our discussion on the second theme, we will translate a paragraph from Mehmet Dîcle's Havîna Evînê (attached). You are welcome to join this experiment and the debate by translating the text into your language of choice.  You will find a copy of the text below
