Shadi Bartsch-Zimmer interview

Classical Pursuits is inviting you to join them online tomorrow evening, Thursday September 9, when they’ll be interviewing Shadi Bartsch-Zimmer, Professor of Classics at the University of Chicago, about her excellent new translation of Vergil’s great Latin-language epic poem, the Aeneid.

They’ll be talking about what the work of translating looks like, the challenges of translating such a well-known text as the Aeneid, and the choices a translator makes in order to bring forward different aspects of a text. Ms Bartsch has spoken about wanting to bring attention to the ‘discredited’ or ‘benighted’ voices of the Aeneid that have been dismissed or devalued in the past; Classical Pursuits is very interested to hear how a translator can make that happen.

The event is tomorrow evening, Thursday September 9, at 7:00pm Eastern/6:00pm Central/4:00pm Pacific time. It will be about an hour long, with an opportunity for questions from the audience in the last 15 minutes or so. If you’re unable to attend the event live—especially those of you in the UK—it will be recorded and available for viewing afterwards. Just register using the link below.
