"Representation & Translation" (with Anton Hur, Jeremy Tiang, and others), May 14 with City of Asylum and Pittsburgh International Literary Festival.


City of Asylum will present "Representation & Translation" on May 14 as part of its Pittsburgh International Literary Festival.
Literary translation catapulted to the international stage because of the recent controversy surrounding the hiring, backlash, and firing of the Danish translator for US inaugural poet Amanda Gorman. Questions around identity & the permission to translate zoomed into focused. But is this wrong question?
Instead, shouldn’t we question the scarcity of Black translators and translators of color? Or talk about dismantling patterns that make it harder for translators of color to access opportunities. How can City of Asylum and others US literary organizations foster a translation community that reflects the diversity of our world? Join a panel of translators as they share their thoughts on these questions and others.
Speakers include Anton Hur (translator from Korean) and Jeremy Tiang (translator from Chinese). The event runs from 7:00 to 8:15 pm and is free and open to the public, though registration is required.

"2021 Asia Pop: Era of Videos" panel discussion with Pitt's Asian Studies Center, April 14.

By Sergey Galyonkin.

The University of Pittsburgh Asian Studies Center will host a panel discussion with several Pitt faculty members to conclude its "2021 Asia Pop: Era of Videos" series on April 14.
Although video culture can be traced to earlier periods, its surge in the digital age marks the arrival of a new era in which anywhere can be a performance stage, and anybody can become a social celebrity. The blurring boundaries between public and private, between stars and fans, and between national and transnational; the paradoxical relations between freedom and surveillance, between connection and isolation, and between actual and virtual, together challenge our perceptions about intimacy, affect, and identity. This roundtable discussion will address some of the issues reflected in the video culture in East Asia, The panelists will share their experiences and expertise in Asian pop culture, hoping to open up more directions and perspectives to look at contemporary East Asia and beyond.
The online event starts at 6:30 pm and registration is required.
