About the Session
This panel will center on the poetic work of Mexican Poet Judith Santopietro, highlighting her political commitment to including indigenous languages in European language texts and contexts. We will discuss both the original Spanish and the poetic translation in English, by Professor Ilana Luna (ASU) of Santopietro’s most recent book Tiawanaku: Poemas de la madre coqa / Poems from the Mother Coqa (Orca Libros, 2019). This panel will include bilingual reading from the book, a discussion of the ethical considerations of translation and publication, the dissemination of women writers from Latin America, as well as a reflection on the creative process itself by the author and translator.
