Natasha Rulyova gives invited lecture

Dr Natasha Rulyova, a member of the Birmingham Centre for Translation, has just returned from a trip to the United States where, among other things, she gave a guest lecture on Joseph Brodsky. On 15 October 2015, by the invitation of Professor Aneta Pavlenko, Dr Rulyova gave a lecture entitled ‘Late Bilingual Writers and Collaborative Self-Translation: The Case of Joseph Brodsky (1940-1996)’ at Temple University, USA. The lecture focussed on her recent archival study of Brodsky’s manuscripts and correspondence which are kept at the Brodsky archive, Beinecke library, in Yale University.

While in the States, Dr Rulyova also took part  in ‘Writing the Stepmother Tongue: A Symposium on Translingual Writing’, which took place at Amherst College, USA.
