Living in Translation

A public humanities event.

Does multilingualism structure the life and communities you inhabit in NYC? Does the experience of growing up between languages speak to you? Or have you ever traveled abroad, only to come home and find that you’d changed too much for English to be home for you anymore? Explore these issues and more in discussion with your peers. We’ll use poetry and theory to try to make sense of daily living in translation, and we welcome you to share your perspective and learn from others.
