SYMPOSIUM: Nabokov’s Idioms: Translating Foreignness

Friday, February 19, 2016 - 08:30 to 17:00
UCen – Flying A Studios Room
This one-day symposium will investigate Nabokov’s writerly practice as a broadly conceived effort of translation. An émigré writer whose works were translated into many languages, Nabokov was himself a notorious translator.
