London 4th October 2018

National Poetry Day Translation Summit - The Future of Poetry Translation: Pathways and Practices

October 4th 2018

For National Poetry Day 2018, the PoetTrio project is hosting a Summit about the future of poetry translation in the Institute of Modern Languages Research, Senate House, London. 

What is the future of poetry translation in Britain? This free-to-attend* day is an opportunity to be part of the discussion. Poets, translators, speakers from cultural institutions, publishers and other stake-holders will come together to reflect on best practice, and brainstorm how to take poetry in translation forwards in the next few years. Along with workshops (for which there�s a �5 fee, including lunch), panels and a reading, there will be chances to network and - vitally - to share ideas and kindle future collaborations.  

PoetTrio is an AHRC research project, run by Newcastle University and the University of Roehampton, which looks at poet-to-poet collaborative translation.

The Summit is free to attend, but space is limited so please ensure you register in advance. Further information and registration can be found here: https://modernlanguages.sas.ac.uk/events/event/16567

11th October 2018, 19:15

Omilos Eksipiretiton (The Servers� Society) is presenting the third part of a poetic trilogy that narrates the three stations of the humans� journey towards the revealing of the greatness within and around them. First stop is the narration of the Creation�s miracle; the second one is the point where the entire physical world is elevated to its true, spiritual nature. The third stop is the poetic work �Logos the Third�, to which this presentation is dedicated; when the human being passes into another state, deep, internal, unwavering; when it sees that it is One with Nature, with the Creation, with the other Humans, with Life.

The presentation will be held in Greek and English, at the Hellenic Centre, 16-18 Paddington Street Marylebone W1U 5AS.

Entry is free. Bookings at 07960797435 or at info@omilos-eksipiretiton.gr
