Art of Translation Series: Dunya Mikhail

Uploaded by Khalil Zeigler
This program is the 4th and final installment of City of Asylum's Art of Translation Series featuring poet Dunya Mikhail. Dunya Mikhail will be reading from several of her collections with focus on her forthcoming work: In Her Feminine Sign. It is the first book she has written in both Arabic and English, a process she talks about in her preface, saying, “I didn’t translate them; I only wrote them twice.” Mikhail will be reading in both English and Arabic and talking about her translation process or why she doesn’t call it “translation.”
