Why should you come to Congress?

From Translation to the Poem: The Levitas of the Original

Keynote speaker: Pedro Serrano

Poems are vital to all of us. This is why translated poems are as important as poems written in the original language: whether translated or not, poems are the language of emotions. However, not only poets per say can translate poetry. Anyone who undertakes the task of interpreting or translating a poem necessarily becomes a poet in the process. Click here for more information.

La traduction littéraire et le Canada

Keynote speaker: Lori Saint-Martin

Impossible yet indispensable, literary translation is everywhere, particularly in Canada. The conference will discuss the passion of translating, the paradoxes of translation, and the Canadian and Québec contexts. It will also discuss joint publishing with France as a source of tensions and new dynamisms. Click here for more information.
