Getting our Hands Dirty: What’s so special about feminist translation (and translating feminists)? Round table discussion and Q&A.

About this event

The late great maverick Moroccan feminist writer Malika Moustadraf died at just 37 years old in 2006. Persecuted throughout her short life for writing about sexual violence and the patriarchy in her fiction, the key details of her life story remain contested. So what are the challenges of translating a dead writer of such freighted work? And what issues must we take into account when attempting to represent someone like her in English in 2022?

With Alice Guthrie, Helen Vassallo and Majida Ibrahim.
