Episode 130: Brazilian Women Writers

(Angelica Freitas, Tiffany Higgins, Hilary Kaplan, John Keene, Ellen Dore Watson) Translators of 20th- and 21st-century poetry and fiction by women from Brazil read from their work and discuss the art of translation and the craft and advocacy inherent in translating writing by women. This panel follows last year's on translating "Brazilianness" to focus on women writers, the stakes of that categorization, and the vibrant landscape of translations of women's writing into English. Form, feminism, gender and sexual identity, age, language, race, and class all come into play.
