Dr. John DuVal, professor and co-director of the MFA Program in Translation at the University of Arkansas-Fayetteville, will visit the Missouri State University campus to lead a workshop in literary translation. The workshop will take place Monday April 19 from 12:00 to 1:45 p.m. in the Traywick Parliamentary Room of the Plaster Student Union. Participants will be treated to lunch and a brief reading from DuVal's own work, after which Prof. DuVal will lead students in a translation "master class." Hosted by the MSU Department of Modern and Classical Languages and co-sponsored by the English Society, DuVal's workshop kicks off a newly-established competition for literary translation. The workshop is open to the first 40 MSU students who reserve a seat or submit their work--faculty are also invited. Reservations, submissions and queries should be emailed to MSU French instructor Dr. TOnia Tinsley at tetinsley [at] missouristate [dot] edu. Prizes will be awarded for the best translation in French and Spanish, and a third prize is open to the best translation from any classical or modern language currently taught at Missouri State. Professor DuVal will serve as judge. Submissions are due by Friday April 2nd.
