Panelists will share their favorite works from the Indian Subcontinent that have yet to be adopted by a translator into English: why they should be, why they haven’t been, and the likely joys and challenges associated with doing so. They will also address issues particular to moving English translations of literature that represents hundreds of languages and one-fifth of humanity into the daylight and onto the shelves.
