SCS this weekend!

I’m off this weekend to the 2023 AIA/SCS Joint Annual Meeting in New Orleans, LA. I’ll be giving my first ever full conference paper presentation this weekend (Sunday morning), titled “Helen in Trans-lation: Putting a Trans Helen on Stage”. This paper is part of the “Translation and the Visual” panel, and I’ll be reflecting on a partial translation I did of Eur. Helen in the fall of 2021; this translation was an interpretive and exploratory exercise for me, and I feel like working on it allowed me to explore the language and nuance of the play deeply. The paper reflects more on some of the difficulties of thinking deeply about visual language and visual impact as inherent to a stage play, while also producing a purely literary/textual object (that is, the translation), and the interpretive places that that work took me.
