Gregary Racz to speak on UO Campus about Translation- May 9th & May 10th
Professor Gregary J. Racz is a scholar and translator of peninsular and Latin American literature and poetry. He specializes in the analogical rendering of meter and rhyme, a practice that challenges dominant translation methodologies. Among his translations are Pedro Calderón de la Barca’s “Life Is a Dream” and Lope de Vega’s “Fuenteovejuna.” He is an associate professor of Foreign Languages and Literature at Long Island University Brooklyn and teaches Spanish translation in the Rutgers Translation Certification Program. Racz is President of the American Literary Translators Association and a book review editor for Translation Review.
Both of his upcoming events are free and open to the public.
