Kavita Bhanot & Jeremy Tiang: 50 Words for Snow

The history of translation into the English language is a story of colonisation. Violent Phenomena: 21 Essays on Translation asks how translators can best acknowledge this troubling past. And might it be possible to use translation to rewrite the balance of power? We welcome editors Kavita Bhanot and Jeremy Tiang to discuss how translators can use their work to challenge assumptions and bring to light new ways of seeing the world.

Jeremy Tiang is appearing remotely.
