Translation and the Afterlives of Literary Works: A virtual reading and discussion with Jennifer Croft

April 1, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Jennifer Croft is the award-winning writer and translator (Polish, Spanish and Ukrainian to English) of works such as “Flight” and Homesick.” She has won the Man Booker International Prize and the William Saroyan International Prize for Writing. Croft will read from her unpublished novel in progress, “Amadou,” a writer’s approach to creating a translation philosophy that engages literary translation theory and practice. The reading will be followed by a conversation with the audience about literary translation.

Croft holds a BA from the University of Tulsa, an MFA from the University of Iowa, and a PhD from Northwestern University.
