Achy Obejas — Association of Writers & Writing Programs (AWP) Conference, Tampa, FL

With:

AWP PANEL: “Writing as Migration,” with May-lee Chai, Ploi Pirapokin, Nayomi Munaweera, and Achy Obejas (The Tower of the Antilles), moderated by Nancy Au. Meaning thrives within the liminal linguistic space between words. For translators, this space is uniquely fraught. How do translators carry the scars of history, intersecting cultures and languages under their skin? What forms of resistance subsist and thrive within the art of translation? How do translators translate the untranslatable? What are the different ways and reasons translators might resist translation?

The panel will take place on the first floor in room 10 in the Tampa Convention Center.
