Call For Applications: Bangla-English Literary Translation Workshop
Dhaka Translation Centre (DTC), in partnership with the British Centre for Literary Translation, Commonwealth Writers and English Pen, is delighted to announce a call for applications for a workshop on Bangla-English translation, to be held in Dhaka from 15-20 November 2014.
Led by the award-winning literary translator Arunava Sinha, workshop participants will work on a consensus translation of one particular text – a short story or an excerpt from a novel – with the author present. The workshop will offer a space for collaboration and peer learning, where participants will be able to share ideas and, with the text before them, discuss in real-time the challenges of translating from Bangla to English.
After the workshop, participants will be assigned stories to translate for an anthology of fiction of Bangladesh.
