Today in the U.S., the small presses and magazines hailed as “most vital” for poetry are increasingly committed to poetry in translation. What are the effects and politics of translation’s newly central role in the contemporary poetry landscape? Participants will include Ammiel Alcalay, Professor of Classical, Middle Eastern, and Asian Languages and Cultures at Queens College and of English and Comparative Literature at the Graduate Center, CUNY; Mónica de la Torre, co-editor of Reversible Monuments: Contemporary Mexican Poetry and senior editor at BOMB Magazine; and Anna Moschovakis, editor and designer with Ugly Duckling Presse and author of I Have Not Been Able to Get Through to Everyone. Moderated by Stefania Heim, co-founder and co-editor of CIRCUMFERENCE.
