In-Person Event | October 17, 2022 | 6:00 p.m. (Paris)

Devant les défis énormes posés par le changement climatique, est-ce que les individus ont vraiment un espoir de faire une différence ? L'action des individus, est-elle héroïque ou chimérique ? Nos experts, tous acteurs engagés dans la société civile, tenterons de répondre à ces questions, en dialogue avec le public et en s'appuyant sur des exemples concrets. 

Organisé en partenariat avec Fulbright France dans le cadre de la Fête de la Science sous l'égide du Ministère de l'Enseignement Supérieure et de la Recherche.



The Art and Craft of Translation in Difficult Times

 In-Person Event | October 18, 2022 | 6:30 p.m. (Paris)

Russia’s war of aggression in Ukraine offers obvious challenges and potential opportunities for Russian fiction in translation. Will book publishers turn away from new translations of classic works? Will they take risks on new voices? What is the relationship between a nation’s literary culture and the state? Do readers make that distinction?

Join award-winning translator Bryan Karetnyk and Eric I. Schwartz, Editorial Director of Columbia University Press on the eve of the Frankfurt Book Fair, the world’s most significant meeting of book publishers, agents, and service providers, for a wide ranging conversation about the art and craft of translation during periods of political crisis.

The Frankfurt in Paris Book series is organized in partnership with Columbia University Press.
