On Thursday, October 28, 2021, the Center for Russian Studies (KU Leuven) welcomes Aai Prins, award-winning literary translator from Russian. She translated dozens of books, including classics such as Gogol, Chekhov, Bulgakov and Pasternak. In 2019 she won the Dutch Foundation for Literature Translation Award, not only for the high quality of her translations, but also for her commitment as a cultural ambassador. During the conversation with Aai Prins, moderator Pieter Boulogne, lecturer in Russian literature at KU Leuven, will discuss her vision of translation and mediatorial role as a translator, culture-specific elements and the evolving translation culture.
This event is organized in collaboration with the Master in Literary Translation (KU Leuven).
