The Gdańsk Meetings of Literary Translators “Found in Translation”

Gdańsk, 25-04-2013 - 27-04-2013

The Gdańsk Meetings of Literary Translators “Found in Translation” The Gdańsk Meetings of Literary Translators “Found in Translation” is an intervention project which is supposed to establish a platform for fascinating discussions with translators, writers and readers. Our aim is to promote culture-forming role of literary translators, but also to expand common knowledge concerning the art of translation. In the contemporary globalized reality, translating often goes beyond tight constrictions of translating texts and becomes an important device in building knowledge about the world, other societies and cultures. This is well recapitulated by Ryszard Kapuściński, who saw “the 21th century man” in a translator: Translating a text, we open up a new world for the Other; we translate, and translating, we make it closer, we let others be in it, and make it a part of our own experience. How, then, the translator’s effort broadens our horizons, deepens our cognition and knowledge, and enlivens our sensitivity. more
