Translating for the Stage with Alan McKendrick

The University of Kentucky has been playing host to Alan McKendrick, a Scottish playwright, stage director, and translator, as he works with students during a compressed, three-week course. Within the course, McKendrick and the students are working to translate and adapt a popular German play into American English with a Kentuckian twist. In this podcast, we speak to McKendrick about his previous work, the difficulties of adapting and translating plays, and the dynamics of the compressed course.

If you are interested in learning more about the play or the process through which it was adapted, a reading of the adaptation produced by Alan McKendrick and the students will be held on Friday, November 14th at 5:00 pm in the Briggs Theater, followed by a question & answers session and a reception.

Network Publishing: Digital Writing in the Humanities

A one day symposium
April 25, 2015

The University of Kentucky
Center Theater, Student Center

Free and open to the public

Keynote: Douglas Armato, Director, University of Minnesota Press

Featured speakers:
Margy Avery, Senior Acquisitions Editor, MIT Press
Shoshana Berger, Editorial Director, IDEO
Maria Bonn, Editor, Journal of Electronic Publishing
Jeff Ullrich, past CEO, Earwolf

Networked Publishing asks speakers to question or trace the future or present of digital publishing, particularly as scholarly work and university interests identify themselves as part of larger networks of meaning, interaction, professionalism, and education. What must digital publishing do to continue the promotion of ideas to both specialized and general audiences as our forms of communication continue to change? What is digital publishing currently doing in response to new scholarly demands? What are writers doing to better utilize platforms, media, strategies, audience interaction, or other features?

Academic publishing has dealt with a variety of incidents and narratives over the last several years regarding its ability to succeed in the digital era. We are asking invited speakers to address the challenges, needs, failures, successes, experiences, provocations, and other related topics to the future or present situation of digital publishing as a scholarly and/or academic exercise. Speakers will address audio, print, visual, and other forms of digital publishing.

Date: 
Saturday, April 25, 2015 - 10:00am to 5:00pm

Student Center
