From Press to Public: Publishing Translated Literature
Sat 3 June 2017, 14:00 – 15:15 BST
OCCT has invited representatives from three publishers (MacLehose; And Other Stories; Granta/Portobello) to explore the dynamics of publishing translated literature. Arranged in a “conversazione” format, these publishers will informally discuss the marketing, economics, problems, and delights of publishing a genre that comprises a tiny percentage of the UK book market. The publishers will be joined by Dr Rajendra Chitnis, an academic who recently completed a report on translating the literatures of small European nations. His project involved extensive engagement with translators, publishers, agents, booksellers, and national and third-sector bodies. The conversation will be chaired by Dr Eleni Philippou.
