Translation Workshops

 

Classical Translation Workshops sponsored by Contexts for Classics are open to faculty and students interested in the history, theory, and practice of translating classical texts.

We coordinate informal meetings to discuss how we read, write, and teach classical translations in English, and we also invite guest speakers to share their expertise.

Please join our CfC email list if you would like to receive announcements of workshops and other events.
