Event - Translating Edna O’Brien’s ’Girl’

How do you go about translating Irish novelist, memoirist, playwright, poet and short story writer Edna O’Brien’s award-winning literature?

In celebration of the 2020 European Day of Languages, the Trinity Centre for Literary and Cultural Translation is teaming up with EUNIC (EU National Institutes for Culture in Ireland), to discuss how some of Ireland’s greatest literature is made available in different languages.

We are bringing together the translators who translated Edna O’Brien’s most recent novel, Girl, into French, German, Italian, and Spanish, to discuss the challenges associated with translating this novel.
We will also hear from Edna O’Brien herself, who will tell us what it is like for her to see her work translated.

This event is online and is free to attend.

Friday 25 September, 5pm
