Inventory

Inventory, established in 2009, is a literary translation project run by Princeton graduate students across disciplines. The group seeks to examine the art and practice of literary translation through collaborative workshops and through the publication of an annual journal. The workshop focuses on craft and provides a forum to present translations in progress. The journal catalogs original translations of poetry and prose from any language into English, provides critical texts on the subject of translation, and offers suggestions of translation work left to be done.

This year we are assembling our tenth issue of Inventory, for which we are extremely excited. We chosen to partially dedicate the issue to encounters between “minority languages” and “majority languages” and multilingualism in literature. We are also looking forward to incorporating a greater variety of visual pieces into this issue to accompany and enhance our textual entries. Those who are interested in translation broadly or any of the themes of this particular issue are encouraged to reach out to the Editors. This year’s pool of submissions includes entries originally written in Arabic, Dutch, Nahuatl, Ojibwe, Russian, Latin, Japanese, Italian, French, Spanish, German, Chinese and Portuguese. Those with reading proficiencies in any of these languages are encouraged to contact the Editors should they be interested in working on the publication. Inventory will hold events periodically throughout the years, to which all are eagerly invited.
