The seventh annual ESLT Summer School will take place online, bringing together around 25 translators and educators from across Europe who are passionate about teaching literary translation. The four-day programme includes a mixture of lectures, seminars and workshops, and features a panel discussion with leading European translation associations. Confirmed faculty participants include Anthony Pym (Melbourne), Haidee Kotze (Utrecht), Paul Bandia (Concordia), Cecilia Alvstad (Østfold) and Kristiina Taivalkoski-Shilov (Turku) and Katarzyna Tryczyńska (Wrocław) and Vanda Mikšić (Zadar).
