Centrifugal at Trinity College Dublin

The Trinity Journal of Literary Translation, in association with The Long Room Hub at Trinity College Dublin and the Irish Translators' and Interpreters' Association, present the Dublin launch of Centrifugal: Contemporary Poetry from Dublin and Guadalajara - a bilingual anthology of reciprocal translations / re-interpretations / versions of the work of 7 pairs of poets from the two cities. The book is published by Mexico's EBL-Cielo Abierto publishing house in conjunction with CONACULTA, Mexico's National Council for Culture and the Arts, and is co-edited by Ángel Ortuño (Guadalajara) and Christodoulos Makris (Dublin).

Introduced by Christodoulos Makris, and also featuring contributions from Alan Jude Moore, Anamaría Crowe Serrano, Catherine Walsh, John Kearns and Kit Fryatt, the event will include readings from the anthology alongside discussions on the range of approaches employed in rendering the work of each partner poet into English.

Centrifugal was officially launched on 1 December 2014 at the Guadalajara International Book Fair in Mexico.
