Course: Literary Translation Summer School July 2013 (includes Russian and Polish)

Deadline: April 26, 2013

Following the great success of the last two Summer Schools, we are delighted to announce the third, expanded Summer School 2013. This five-day event will take place at Birkbeck University of London in central Bloomsbury (Malet Street, London WC1E 7HX: access via Torrington Square) on 22-26 July 2013. It comprises courses in translation into English from Chinese, French academic, French literary, German academic, German literary, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Swedish – each class subject to a minimum group-size of five students – and, for the first time this year, a full course in Editing; plus additional editing skills classes for all. There will also be games, a competition, meet-the-publishers, and guest lectures and workshops. Videos showing extracts from earlier events can be found on the website (url above).

Though hotel accommodation is readily available in the Bloomsbury area, we have block-booked 30 single rooms in one of London University’s international student halls for the five nights 21-25 July inclusive, on a first-come-first-served basis. The rooms are fairly basic, ie bed, desk etc with no en-suite and you would share the bathroom & a basic pantry, but they include breakfast, and you can also get dinner in hall by booking on the day (see http://www.halls.london.ac.uk/visitor/garden/Default.aspx). Further information on this accommodation can be obtained from info.gardens@london.ac.uk . To obtain one of these rooms, make sure you tick the box on the online booking form and add £210 to your payment.

Summer School fees: Full fee: £450; student fee: £300. Bursaries available: deadline 26 April 2013. The online booking form is now open at https://www2.bbk.ac.uk/european/.
