Translation Carnival

Participants were young translators, either on a Comparative Literature Ph. D. track or already teaching. Conversations in various workshops and panels were very stimulating and I met translators such as Jason Grunebaum, Guillan Siassi, Rebecca McKay, Nina Shevchuk, Danny Refinejad, Nahrain Al-Mousawi and Eugene Sampson.
My poetryfilms were to screen, but the timing of their screening was not well-planned (scheduled after the Carnival ended and everyone was gone) and it coincided with apocalyptic mid-west weather, so the audience was no bigger than a handful of U of Iowa translators!
