A Language for Every Latitude: The Poetry of Amelia Rosselli

A conference
Friday, May 6 – Saturday, May 7, 2011
Event Oval, The Diana Center

Amelia Rosselli is widely recognized as one of the most innovative and exciting Italian poets of the past half-century. As she was both a poet who wrote in three languages—Italian, English and French—and a translator, questions of translation are central to her work. This international conference brings together the major critics and translators of Rosselli to discuss her poetry and read some of the finest translations of her work. This event is sponsored by the Barnard Center for Translation Studies thanks to a grant from the Mellon Foundation.
