UM Frankel Center Event: Translating from Yiddish: New Approaches in Theory and Practice

December 5 @ 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM

Cost: Free

Translating from Yiddish: New Approaches in Theory and Practice

Fellows: Anita Noirch, Yaakov Herskovitz, Julian Levinson

What unique challenges confront the translator from Yiddish into another language? How is Yiddish translation affected by phenomena such as the rise of Zionism, the Holocaust, and changing relations between American Jews and the immigrant experience? How do we choose what and for whom to translate? How and why do writers translate their own work? Scholars and translators on this panel will grapple with these issues, while raising broader questions about the theory and practice of translation from any language. Examples from current translations-in-progress will be offered.
