Forty Nine Degrees – Chinese Translation Slam

  • Studio, University of Sheffield Students' Union Western Bank S10 2TG United Kingdom (map)

In the heat of a traffic jam, a man and woman get stuck in a taxi on their way to visit the woman’s parents. She’s a graduate with few prospects; he’s the man her parents desperately want her to marry. Will they make the train? Nicky Harman and Michelle Deeter compare alternative translations of this story by one of China’s brightest women writers, Aman Song. With host Deborah Smith from Tilted Axis Press.

In collaboration with University of Sheffield Students’ Union
