Save the date! The annual NEaT Christmas party and the first NEaT Translation Slam will be held on December 5 at 5 pm. The party is free for paid members, but five euros for non-members.
NEaT is excited to host our first Translation Slam. Translation slams, or translation duels, are innovative events where participants compete for the best version or compare different versions of a given (usually literary or creative) text. Slams are also open forums to see, for example, who can best embody an author’s voice, how translation happens, what different readings may a paragraph have, and what constitutes the art of translation itself.
If you are interested in participating, please contact Virve at virve (a) capecontext.com for a text. We’ll do two levels, an easy text and a master level text. The texts will be short and flexible enough for you to choose any style you wish for the final version. If we get more than three participants for either level, you may be assigned a team. In any case, teams are welcome!
The board will provide an open Mexican buffet and a welcome drink. If you would like to have something more to drink with your meal, please bring your own beverage.
RSVP by November 28 to julie.uusinarkaus (a) helsinki.fi.
