The Value of Literary Translation as Scholarly Activity: Lessons from and as a translator

Jamie Banks

CUNY Graduate Center

This talk encourages classicists’ serious engagement with modern work on literary translation studies and the practice of literary translation of ancient texts. I use what I have learned as an assistant to a literary translation conference with international scope and my own literary translations of Pliny the Elder to assert the power of translation for and as deep scholarly activity.
