Your Language My Ear
Your Language My Ear is a poetry symposium series dedicated to contemporary Russian poetry and its translation. As part of our work with Your Language My Ear, we continued development the symposium's website, documenting the 2019 symposium and its participants. We also cataloged available English-language translations for more than forty-five contemporary Russian poets, compiling lengthy bibliographies. This in-depth archival process often entailed collaboration with the poets and translators themselves, providing valuable firsthand insight into the translation and publication process. During the course of our research, we extended this bibliographic work into Wikipedia. Many important Russian writers lack adequate informational footprints in the English world; by creating and expanding pertinent Wikipedia articles, we assisted in publicizing these writers and disseminating their translated work. Additionally, in doing so, we widened the online profile of Your Language My Ear.
