Professor Suzuki’s talk on Manga and Translation

TRANSLATING VISUAL STORIES: GRAPHIC NOVELS, COMICS, PICTURE BOOKS, AND ILLUSTRATED YA

headshots of participants at the Translating Visual Stories event

Deutsches Haus at NYU presents together with the PEN Translation Committee, and PEN America’s Children’s and Young Adult Books Committee the panel discussion Translating Visual Stories: Graphic Novels, Comics, Picture Books, and Illustrated YA with Kristi FernandezLyn Miller-LachmannSandra SmithCJ Suzuki, and Lucas Zwirner. Stories that combine text and illustration are growing in popularity. Some of the most interesting and innovative work is coming from outside the US and translated into English. Panelists will talk about translating graphic novels, comics, picture books, and illustrated YA books and how both text and visuals change when adapted to a new language and culture. We’ll focus on Japan, a pioneer of comics and graphic novels, Western Europe, where edgy stories dominate and refugees give voice to a more diverse continent, Germany, and the attempt to re-frame a beloved YA classic for a U.S. audience, and Brazil, with its unique picture book illustrations.

“Translating Visual Stories: Graphic Novels, Comics, Picture Books, and Illustrated YA” is a DAAD-sponsored event.

THIS IS AN OFFICIAL BROOKLYN BOOK FESTIVAL 2019 EVENT.

Conversation Partners Program Information and Application

From:  Prof. Elizabeth M. Minei, Communication Studies
The Conversation Partners Program (CPP) matches native and nonnative speakers of English for informal conversations. The partnerships are a great way for non-native students to gain confidence in English, for native speakers to gain experience in communicating across language barriers, and for both native and nonnative speakers to expand their cultural knowledge, make friends, and build a network of professional contacts. To participate, students should be willing to commit to meeting their partner about one hour per week for a minimum of 6 conversations. We also feature fun events throughout the semester, like trivia night, tea time, game night, professional development, and
a closing ceremony for community building. 
Orientations will be held:
●     Thursday September 12, at 12:30 p.m., NVC 4-126
●     Wednesday September 18, at 6:00 p.m., D-301
For more information and to sign up, or to post the flyer for the semester, see  http://www.baruch.cuny.edu/cpp    
The deadline for signing up is September 20.
Note: CPP often has more nonnative than native students signing up so please encourage both nonnative and native speakers to participate.
If you have questions, please feel free to contact me via email: Elizabeth.Minei@Baruch.cuny.edu. Thank you!
