Yvgeny Yanvosky will present his paper: "Precise and War"
Jonathan Grossman will be the discussant for this presentation.

The Writing Translation, workshop focuses on texts written around and following the third meeting of the Sophie Davis Learning Community on Translation, Gender, and Conflict Resolution. The texts focus on the translation processes in which we are involved, focusing on the ways in which traditions, languages, and individuals’ social locations impact (and are impacted by) translation processes, as well as the translation practices themselves.
