Cafe of Reminiscence

  • Lovecrumbs

Joining in the spirit of To Absent Friends, this November, we will replace our usual death café with a Café of Reminiscence.

Do you have a story to tell of someone you loved who is dead? A grandparent who had a fascinating life? A friend with a unique sense of humour?

Come along, drink tea, eat cake, meet some new people, and share your stories - let's celebrate how special dead ordinary people can be.  If you like, bring something that reminds you of a dead loved one - a ring, a book, a photo - to help get the stories started.

If I Swear, My Translator Swears: 
An Analysis of Taboo and Swear Words Translations in a Conservative Socio-Cultural Context

Being passionate about literary translation, I was inspired to investigate unfairness of censorship on literary translation in Turkey through my research when the Turkish publishers and translators of Chuck Palahniuk’s Snuff (2008) and William S. Burroughs’ The Soft Machine (1961) were taken to the court on the grounds of obscenity in 2011 and are now facing 3-6 years of jail time.
