Translating Morocco: Fouad Laroui, Emma Ramadan and Adam Shatz

event

About the event

To celebrate the Morocco issue of Words without Borders, Prix Goncourt winner Fouad Laruoi and translator Emma Ramadan will read from their work and discuss the political and social context for Moroccan literature today—both in and outside the country. The conversation will be moderated by Adam Shatz, Contributing Editor at the London Review of Books.

This event is presented as part of Translation, an interdisciplinary research group that investigates how translation might be understood as a process of transformation that deepens engagement with places, people, cultures, and languages. The group is supported by the Mellon Seminar on Public Engagement and Collaborative Research. For more information or to join, emailch@gc.cuny.edu.

Cosponsored by the Translation Mellon Seminar for Public Engagement and Collaborative Research and Words Without Borders.
