Jan Zábrana: Poet, translator, reader

On 6-7 November 2015, the Department of Translation Studies, Faculty of Arts, hosts an international conference devoted to Jan Zábrana. The conference will focus on three major areas of his work: his own poetry and fiction, translations of modern English, American, Russian, French and Spanish literature, and finally his literary journalism where Zábrana introduced his authors to the public. The event seeks to emphasize the links between these three areas as a necessary component of current approaches to Zábrana.

The conference programme will be accompanied by workshops for translators where the participants will have a unique opportunity to experience Zábrana in the process ot translation under the supervision of foreign lecturers in Czech studies and local experts.

Registration for the conference, call for papers and sign-up for the workshops is open until 15 September. Please sign up at the conference website.
