The Institut Ramon Llull joins in Catalan Book Week with the visit of 16 foreign publishers and a translation bookshop
From 11th to 15th September the mission of foreign publishers and literary agents that the Institut Ramon Llull has organized for the past 10 years, entitled Making Catalan Literature Travel for International Publishers and Agents, is back.
The Institut Ramon Llull (IRL), in conjunction with the University of the Balearic Islands, is organising a Summer Language Stay in Palma from 3 to 15 September. The programme is aimed at people keen to improve their knowledge of the Catalan language and culture and to discover the city of Palma and the island of Mallorca.
The Dutch Spoffin festival is making a strong commitment to Catalan and Balearic companies in this year’s edition, so much so that they represent 80% of the entire programme. The Catalan and Balearic showcase, entitled “Viva Catalonia!”, has shows by eight street performing arts companies that include theatre, circus and dance.
The IRL and the ALTA (American Literary Translators Association) are to resume their collaboration for the second mentorship project (2017-2018), after the first pilot project in 2015-2016. The aim of the programme is to enable an experienced translator and a novice to work together on a common literary translation project from Catalan into English over one academic year.
