strange days in Europe

CREATIVE EUROPE LITERATURE TRANSLATION PROJECT

project: STRANGE DAYS IN EUROPE

Our project consists of books that will be translated both from the Greek into Spanish and from lesser spoken languages, English, French and Spanish into Greek. This way, we hope to create bonds between the original and target languages. We will translate books from Danish and Albanian, two lesser used languages, into Greek as well as Greek books (yet another lesser used language) into Spanish. We will introduce the work of Spanish Nobel prize-winner, Vicente Aleixandre to the Greek market for the very first time; also, the not so widely known literary, hybrid texts of famous French composer, Erik Satie. We will promote queer literature both in Greece and in Spain through the translation of the book of Antonis Tsirikoudis into Spanish and Bjorn Rasmussen into Greek. Furthermore, most of our proposed books belong to under-represented genres such as short story collections, a comic album, an interdisciplinary prosetry collection, a poetry collection. Through our proposed books we aim to create a network of cultural and linguistic exchange through quality and under-represented literature that also to develop networks in order to create more space for this literary dialogue to expand in the future.
