The Fall issue of The Quarterly Conversation has just been published. The journal, for which our own Daniel Medin is a contributing editor, is perhaps the most lively site for discussion of contemporary and experimental world literature and literature in translation.

AUP students and alumns are all over it!Mona Gainer-Salim (Comparative Literature) has written a timely feature essay on Israeli-American writer Yorak Kaniuk.

Madeleine Larue (Art History and MA in Cultural Translation) reviews the work of Polish writer Mariusz Szczygieł

And Eric Lundgren reviews Jan Steyn’s translation of Edouard Levé’s Works (Jan Steyn is a Comparative Literature and Cultural Translation alumni, currently working towards his PhD at Cornell University)

Mona, Madeleine, and Jan are now seasoned literary figures. Perhaps more impressive is the review by current AUP student Ariel Starling, of Elena Ferrante’s new novel.
