OCCT TT 2020 Week 8 Updates

This year, given the COVID-19 pandemic, Oxford Translation Day took place as a series of online sessions over the course of a few weeks. On Saturday, 13 June, we announced the Oxford-Weidenfeld Prize shortlist. We also released video recordings of Sophie Hughes, the literary translator, talking about the novel Hurricane Season, and A.E. Stallings, the poet and translator, discussing the poets Katerina Anghelaki-Rooke and Kiki Dimoula, who both died in early 2020, leaving behind a huge absence in Modern Greek letters.
