A panel discussion of what to do when translating a manuscript (or section of a manuscript) that presents politically, socially, or ethically problematic issues, either in the origin or destination language. Panelists will speak about their struggles and decisions regarding expressions of anti-Semitism (as in the poetry of Petr Bezruč), creepy objectification of the female body (as in the poetry of Claudio Bertoni), interest in young women bordering on pedophilia (as in the work of Peter Altenberg), or violence against children (as in a novel by Aglaja Veteranyi).
