This panel brings together prominent writers, translators, and editors to discuss working at the intersections between experimentation, race, and imperialism. Digging into colonial asymmetries in language, critiques of mastery and legibility, and the stakes of improvisation, our translators will speak to their evolving relationships between language, play, and politics. Featuring Jack Jung, Madhu Kaza, and Jeremy Tiang, and moderated by Saba Ahmed and Esther Kim.
