Oxford Translation Day 2024

Every June, St Anne’s College runs Oxford Translation Day, a celebration of literary translation consisting of a vibrant range of workshops and talks. The day culminates in the award of the Oxford-Weidenfeld Translation Prize. The Oxford-Weidenfeld Translation Prize is for book-length literary translations into English from any living European language. It aims to honour the craft of translation, and to recognise its cultural importance. It was founded by Lord Weidenfeld and is funded by New College, The Queen’s College, and St Anne’s College.

The full programme is available on the Oxford Comparative Criticism and Translation (OCCT) Research Centre website, here: occt.web.ox.ac.uk/oxford-translation-day-2024
