Inventory, established in September 2009, is a literary translation project run by Princeton graduate students across disciplines. The group seeks to examine the art and practice of literary translation through collaborative workshops and through the publication of an annual journal. The workshop focuses on craft and provides a forum to present translations in progress. The journal catalogs original translations of poetry and prose from any language into English, provides critical texts on the subject of translation, and offers suggestions of translation work left to be done.
Past issues can be purchased here. For distribution, please contact David Boyd at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Inventory no. 7 will arrive later this year. Details to follow.
