How can translation serve as a creative border crossing in this age of walls? We will connect translation (movement of texts) to immigration (movement of bodies) and explore using poetry to move language and ideas across borders. We will look at activist/immigrant projects that use translation as an act of critical resistance and try out simple translation exercises of our own. Participants will leave with skills to begin to engage in acts of critical translation.
