Queer in Translation

Queer in Translation

Translation Workshop

The participants in this workshop take a playful approach to experimenting with creative translation solutions for phenomena of non-binary gender identities and queer linguistic forms. Twelve translators with different source languages will have the opportunity to exchange views on forms of discrimination-sensitive language and their role as mediators of queer narratives. They explore forms of queer speaking, trace forward-looking concepts in the translation’s target language and are accompanied on their path into the world of tomorrow. 

The working language for the workshop is German, participation is free. It will be held online.
Moderation: Charlotte Bomy and Lisa Wegener.
A binding invitation to the workshop will be sent on June 7th, 2021
