Office Hours With Brenna Byrd And Anastasia Curwood

Our latest episode of Office Hours is here! In this session, Professors Brenna Byrd and Anastasia Curwood join us to discuss their teaching, research, and interests. Professor Byrd leads off with a discussion of German culture and Turkish-German hip-hop while Professor Curwood explores her recent research regarding Shirley Chisholm. The two professors discover their common interests -- forms of social resistance, feminism, language, and identity and discuss them from two very different perspectives.

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.
